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. 


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.
