High winds and rain wreaked havoc in eastern Racine County and 983 We Energies customers were without power at about 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, according to We Energies website.

The bulk of those residents effected are in Mount Pleasant near Highway C and S. Green Bay Road. A handful of residents have also been effected throughout eastern Racine County.

We’ll keep you posted as we find out more information.
