Severe storms down trees, cut power

Severe storms moving through our area downed trees and cut power late Monday night.

There were several downed trees in the parking lot near UW-La Crosse’s Eagle Hall. The parking lot was mostly empty during the storm, but one tree did land on one of the few cars there at the time.

Crews also had to close one lane of La Crosse Street while they cleared it of a fallen tree.

Some residents on La Crosse’s southside lost power during the storm. XCel Energy expected power to be restored around 1 a.m. Tuesday.
