SHOREWOOD -- Only a handful of customers remain without power in Shorewood Wednesday  morning.  The Red Cross had set up a shelter at Shorewood High School for people who needed to stay cool.  The North Shore Fire Department said if you know someone who needs assistance in getting to the shelter, call 911.

"With the heat wave we want to get the message out to our elderly residents," explained Spokesperson Dan Tyk.  "Take advantage of the shelter now.  I know it's cooling off outside, it's been a hot day.  Stay hydrated don't wait until it's too late.

At the height of the issue, We Energies said 3,300 of their customers were without power.  It's unclear what caused the fuse unit to malfunction near the intersection of Capitol and Oakland, but crews worked through the night to get power restored.
