Storms left thousands of families across southeast Wisconsin without power Wednesday night.

According to We Energies’ outage map, more than 4,800 customers were without power as of 5 a.m. Thursday after the storms rolled through. Power was restored to all but a few hundred customers by Thursday afternoon.

More than 15,000 were without power Wednesday night.

In Germantown, a mobile home lost power and a power cord was left dangling, nearly touching the ground.

The TODAY’S TMJ4 crew in the Stormchaser saw a number of power trucks out on the streets around Germantown and a lot of limbs fallen off trees.
