More power failure problems in New Berlin, West Allis
Power failures are still affecting about 3,000 We Energies customers, mostly in New Berlin, spokesman Barry McNulty said.
McNulty said the current power failure is affecting customers in the area around W. Howard Ave. between S. 124th St. and S. 139th St. A few customers in nearby parts of West Allis are also affected.
This area has been experiencing power failures for much of the evening, starting about 4:30 p.m. when 4,400 customers were without power, McNulty said. He added that the current failure is affecting many of the same customers, although the exact area affected has shifted to the south.
McNulty said equipment failure is the cause of the power failures, likely due to today's high temperatures. He does not know when power will be restored.
