SPRING GREEN, WI (WTAQ) - For the second day in a row, Governor Scott Walker spent his lunch hour touring storm damage in Wisconsin.

Tuesday, he inspected an area near Spring Green where one of two tornadoes touched down on Sunday evening in rural Iowa and Dane counties.

Monday, Walker toured parts of La Crosse, where high winds caused thousands of power outages on Saturday.

The Milwaukee area still had 28,000 electric customers in the dark late Tuesday morning. That was after high winds caused 114,000 outages Monday throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

We Energies said it was the largest number of outages for a single incident in a decade -- and about one of every ten customers in the area were affected.

Time Warner also reported scattered cable TV and Internet outages in the Milwaukee region.
