RACINE — Much of Downtown Racine and the surrounding areas were without power for several hours Wednesday.More than 600 We Energies customers were without power starting at around 9 a.m. until the early afternoon."Our crews discovered an issue with an underground electrical cable that has since been fixed," a We Energies spokesperson said in an email.Power was restored "in batches," the spokesperson said, due to the area being served almost entirely by underground cables. The ninth annual Girls Empowered by Math & Science Conference on Thursday gave middle-school girls in and around Racine a chance to find their science, technology, engineering and mathematics passions, get engaged with STEM-related professions and learn new things.
