Tree trimmers aren't the only one who are busy after a storm hits.

Wisconsin Public Service had its hands full with a number of power outages Tuesday night.

WPS officials say trees and branches took out power lines in several places. If that happens near you, their advice is to call the professionals to handle it And never try to remove a tree on your own.

"the tree can be dangerous, the ground around it can be dangerous. We just really ask that people be careful, take caution, call 911, call Wisconsin Public Service," said Kelly Zagrzebski of Wisconsin Public Service.

Zagrzebski says you can't always tell by looking at it if a power line is live, so to stay safe, just stay away and call for help.
