DODGE COUNTY -- High winds brought down trees and led to Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and a watch that impacted all of SE Wisconsin on Monday, June 12th.

As of 9:00 p.m. Monday, the We Energies Outage Map was showing more than 400 outages in SE WI, with more than 30,000 customers impacted.

"It got darker and darker, and all of a sudden we looked out and it was like a wind storm -- just blowing," Mary Roecker, in Dodge County said Monday.

Roecker works at a restaurant -- where the power went out during the storms.

"All the customers got scared and within a few minutes, the lights were out and I was trying to serve them in the dark," Roecker said.

The storms suspended play at Erin Hills Golf Course and everyone was asked to take cover. The media tent shook as wind and rain moved in.
