About 100 We Energies customers in Racine County were without power at 7 a.m. Tuesday, according to We Energies website.

The power outages are occurring in Franksville, Caledonia, Racine, Waterford and Burlington. The cause of those outages is under investigation, but a storm passed through southeastern Wisconsin that resulted in wind damage.

“We are seeing an increase in power outages and are working to make areas safe and clear debris as we continue to restore power to our customers,” according to We Energies.

Officials are warning residents to stay at least 25 feet away from downed wires and to call the utility if there are outages in your area at 800-662-4797.
