Severe storms cause power outages, damage

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for southeast Wisconsin Tuesday, Aug. 10 – and storms brought heavy wind, knocking out power for thousands.

Near 60th and Keefe, Milwaukee police blocked access to Keefe because a large tree branch fell on top of a parked SUV, with the winds from this storm the driving force of that damage.

Cameras captured the covered domes atop Braise restaurant in Walker's Point blew off the rooftop and down below onto Second Street.

Nearby, neighbors told us about a large tree that fell on top of two detached garages. Another tree was completely uprooted near 58th and Capitol, with the quick combo of heavy winds and rain causing damage across the city.
