As spokesperson for Xcel said they've called in additional crews throughout Wisconsin and the Twin Cities area to assist with the damage.

"It's a good feeling to get them back in, but that's part of our job -- that we are required to work on emergencies and it's also satisfying to know you can help people," said Warren Tolbert, a Xcel Energy foreman from St. Paul.

 Tolbert said he got called at 5:30 Sunday morning to come to La Crosse. He was out restoring power lines all day.
