MILWAUKEE -- Nearly 3,000 We Energies customers were left without power Wednesday morning.

According to the power company's outage map, just over 2,600 customers in Milwaukee were affected as of 10:00 a.m.

A downed wire at N. 37th St. and W. Custer Ave. caused the outage, We Energies says. There's no word yet as to when power is expected to be restored.
