A snowstorm in Southeast Wisconsin has left approximately 100,000 customers without power.
Wet and heavy snow caused a large tree branch to fall on a power line, knocking out power to homes and neighborhoods.
One resident reported hearing the tree cracking and predicted it would come down, and shortly after, it did, causing a power outage.
Nearly 20% of Saint Francis, or roughly 1,000 We Energies customers, were affected by the power outage.
Crews are assessing the problem countywide and have not given an estimated time for when power will be restored.
Tree trimmers were spotted by mid-morning, and power crews began working in the afternoon after the lines were cleared.
The snow has caused problems not only for power lines but also for snow removal, as trees keep supplying the sidewalk with snow.
