Heavy storms came through the area this morning, which caused some downed trees.

However, the hardest hit areas were north of Racine County. Straight line winds remain the main concern along with a slight risk of severe thunderstorms.

Racine County is not included in the the thunderstorm watch, but the area did see heavy rain falls and windy conditions.

  • 11:15 a.m.: A tree over by the Root River near Seven Mile Road was reportedly on fire, the Caledonia Fire Department is on scene.
  • 11:20 a.m. West Boulevard and Washington there’s a power line down, which cars are driving over. No sparking, but rescue crews are on their way.
  • 11:35 a.m. 31 and 4 Mile Road: Traffic Lights out at the intersection.
  • 11:37 a.m. a tree struck a house and the whole porch came down with it, but we didn’t catch the address.

We’ll keep you posted on power outages, traffic, and downed trees.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this story should have mentioned that the thunderstorm watch was meant for counties north of Racine County.
