DULUTH, MN -

The lights were turned off for thousands across the KBJR 6 viewing area as storms marched north Tuesday evening. 

Line crews were out in full force throughout the day on Wednesday to restore power.

The storm knocked out power to more than 1,600 Xcel Energy customers in northern Wisconsin, and another 4,800 Lake Country Power customers on the Iron Range. 

Around 1,400 Minnesota Power customers were without power in the viewing area at the height of the storm.
