UPDATE:

Power has been restored after thousands were in the dark following Friday's storms. 

We Energies said a tree fell and knocked down a power line near 2nd and Concordia. The outage lasted 70 minutes. 

ORIGINAL STORY:

Thousands of people are without power after storms rolled through the area on Friday. 

According to the We Energies Outage Map, more than 3,400 people are without power as of 2:20 p.m.

Much of the outages are near I-43 near Capitol Drive. 

Earlier in the day floods shut down parts of I-43 near Good Hope Road. 

We Energies can't confirm what the issue is, but it's possible the outage was caused by downed trees.
