UPDATE: Power back for some

At about 8:45 a.m., we started getting reports that power is back on for some poeple in Western Kenosha County.

Early reports were that Bristol residents had power. In Paddock Lake, westofthei.com headquarters had power again at about 8:45 a.m.

Lilly Lake power back at about 9:49 a.m.

UPDATE about 10:15 a.m. — We Energies spokesman Brain Manthey says about 4,000 customers still without power, down from peak of over 13,000. Some 500 of those customers may be out of power due to a separate outage. Power expected to be restored within 60 minutes.

    I’m a Bristol resident north of county C. Power was not restored until 9:20am. We NRG phone updates stated a transmission co. problem. What does that mean as a cause of such a large spread random outage. Also the phone updates quoted a lot fewer customers affected, approximately 1200, when the online outage map was 11,000. Plus and went as high as 13,000. Hats off to west of the I for prompt reporting. BK
