WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Thunderstorms brought some much needed rain to parts of Wisconsin, but also caused some inconvenience by knocking out power.

We Energies says it's working to restore service to about 10,000 customers in the Fox Valley, south of Madison and the Waukesha area.

We Energies says 18,000 customers lost service at one point because of strong winds knocking down trees, branches and power lines. The Waukesha airport recorded wind gusts of nearly 60 mph overnight.
