MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A power failure knocked out electricity to nearly 8,000 customers in downtown Milwaukee.
We Energies spokeswoman Cathy Schulze says an equipment failure at a substation caused the outage about 4:45 p.m. Friday. There were reports of a flash when the failure happened.
The power failure also affected traffic signals, prompting police to direct traffic at several intersections. The affected areas also included Marquette University.
Cool and dry, then snow returning Thursday night with several inches. Another storm by late Saturday.
