Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

UPDATE: Power was restored at about 5:15 p.m., but the cause of the outage has not been determined.

STURTEVANT, WI – Almost 1,200 We Energies customers have been without power since 4:11 p.m. Thursday in the Sturtevant area.

According to We Energies’ power outage map, the cause of the outage has not yet been determined. However, repair crews have been assigned. The estimated time of restoration is about 6 p.m.

Racine County Eye has reached out to officials with the Racine County Joint Dispatch Center. They have not reported any crashes in the area.

A neighbor in the area, however, said she heard “three very loud buzzing noises from outside,” the lights flickered off and on but then went out.

The outages were reported near Durand Avenue and Wisconsin Street and along Oakes Road and Cozy Acres.

We’ll update this story when we receive more information.
