Hostile Fall Weather hits Ozaukee County and Beyond


Thousands of people were without power in southeast Wisconsin and in parts of Ozaukee County communities as of Monday morning, Oct. 25, 2021.

Heavy winds and heavy pockets of rain passed through late Sunday evening and overnight, and affected communities closest to Lake Michigan.

As of late morning Monday, there were still pockets of power outages in Grafton and Mequon, according to the We Energies outage map on it's web site.

According to a Grafton resident near 7th Ave. and Highway 60, she noticed sudden bursts of a flashing light and a loud thunder-like rumble periodically. She was befuddled by this because it was hardly raining at all and there were no thunder storms passing through at that time.

Other residents in the Grafton area experienced quick on-and-off intermittent power outages, along with a loud booming noise. One resident questioned and thought maybe a transformer went out at a power substation near the Grafton water works location on the eastside of Grafton.

A wind advisory and lakeshore flood advisory was in place until 7 p.m. Monday for Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Counties.
