Overnight storm knocks down trees, causes sporadic power outages

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Heavy rain and strong winds knocked out power for a number of people across the metro late Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

As of 8:45 a.m. Kansas City Power and Light was reporting that nearly 4,000 customers are without power.

At 88th and Summit a large tree crashed down and hit two power lines. That temporarily knocked out power for the two neighboring blocks. It also hit a truck sitting in the driveway of the home.
