KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Thousands of people woke up without power Thursday morning. Just as many people looked out windows to find fallen tree branches littering the lawn. People living in a Northland neighborhood continue to clean up tonight.

In the Deerfield area, southeast of 169 Highway and Shoal Creek, you can see tree branches piled up on the curb- those are the lucky owners.

Other homeowners in the area are dealing with broken fences. Wayne Millen lost two trees and his kids' play set. Kansas City Power & Light had thousands of customers without power through the morning and early afternoon.

As of Thursday evening, there were still thousands of people without power in the metro. Millen is glad he has power, but he's no longer excited for the weekend.

"Looking at my weekend and how it's going to be spent cleaning up this mess, it's pretty phenomenal - I'm not looking forward to it. But it's kind of the price you pay when you own your own home," Millen said.
