Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

IRON RIVER, WI -- Monday evening's storms caused problems along Highway 2 in Northwest Wisconsin.

In Ino around 8 p.m., crews worked to fix downed lines and restore power to about 500 households in the area.

Strong winds took down trees and power lines across the area.

We were told it would still be hours before the lights are back on for everyone.

Earlier in the evening on Highway 2, downed power lines started a brief grass fire in Iron River.

It did not spread to any structures.

There were also reports of flash flooding in much of northwest Wisconsin as the storms moved through.

A viewer sent us video of water over the road in Iron River.

Fortunately, no widespread damage after there were multiple Tornado Warnings Monday evening.
