Aug. 16, 2012 11:00 a.m. | An estimated 2,500 Wauwatosa residents were left without power this morning. According to We Energies, a tree limb fell on a power line, resulting in the outage.

We Energies sent a forestry crew to remove the limb. They also rerouted power to lessen the number of customers without power.

The outage was reported as of 8 a.m. As of 9:30 a.m. 375 customers were left without power.

We Energies plans to restore power to all residents by noon and stated that other outages were minimal and caused by lightning strikes.

A spokesman for We Energies said that if anyone sees a downed line to stay at least 25 feet away from it and call their emergency line at 800-662-4797.
