Thousands of Alliant Energy customers are without power as a result of Friday's storms.


Spokeswoman Mary Fanning-Penny says all the outages are weather-related, from lightning and tree damage. She says it's hard to get an accurate picture of the outages, since they're scattered throughout Rock County.


Alliant does not yet have a time estimate to restore power to those customers. Fanning-Penny says crews need to assess the damage, and tree damage takes a lot longer to assess than lightning damage.
