Ameren Missouri crews restored power to virtually all 61,500 customers impacted by outages resulting from Thursday’s severe wind storm. As of 4:30 p.m., fewer than 900 storm-related power outages remain.
"Ameren Missouri crews and support staff are focused on providing reliable service to Missouri communities in a safe and effective manner," says Michael Moehn, senior vice president, Customer Operations. “Our co-workers have done an outstanding job of restoring power as quickly as possible to the thousands of customers impacted by yesterday’s storm.”
The company is deactivating its Emergency Operations Center, the headquarters for the utility's statewide storm restoration effort; however, the final stages of power restoration efforts and cleanup work will continue until completed.
Ameren Missouri continues to encourage pedestrians to stay clear of crew work areas, as well as downed power lines, broken poles and tree limbs. Customers without power, or those wanting to report downed lines and other power-related issues, should call 1.800.552.7583.
