GREEN BAY - A line of severe thunderstorms moved through portions of NE Wisconsin overnight, knocking down trees and power lines across a wide area North and West of the Fox Valley.

Menominee County Emergency Management reports one person was killed when a tree fell onto his vehicle. There were multiple traffic accidents across the region due to downed trees. Most of Menominee County is without power as of early Thursday morning.

There are pockets of damage reported across Brown County including the west side of Green Bay and Ashwaubenon.

At one time nearly 24,000 people were without power across Northern Wisconsin. WPS says that number is down to about 3,000.
