WAUSAU (WAOW)--Another round of storms rips through the area taking down trees and cutting off power. High winds brought down this tree off Wisconsin Street in Wausau.

WPS called in crews from Green Bay to help clean up the mess.

"We had a large tree which you can see is a 36 inch tree that came down and tore all the wires and fell on a house. We worked on it for the last two hours trying to save the house from more damage. now we are just going to plunk a new hole in the ground, bring the wire back up and restore the power," says Wisconsin Public Service Lineman Casey Laukka.

Hundreds of people throughout central Wisconsin were without power.
