(AP) -- Parts of the Midwest have been hit by more foul weather this weekend.

Thousands of people are without power in Wisconsin and Illinois following storms yesterday. And crews are still working to restore service to tens of thousands of homes and businesses cut off by Friday's powerful storm in Omaha, Nebraska. The Omaha Public Power District says it could take a week to get it all back on.

Southeast Wisconsin got pounded by hail the size of golf balls yesterday. High winds knocked out windows and ripped shingles off roofs.

Strong thunderstorms also moved across Illinois. Ten people suffered minor injuries when high winds blew down some tents at an art fair outside Chicago.
