Ameren Missouri Deactivates Emergency Operations Center

Ameren Missouri has deactivated its Emergency Operations Center as of 3 p.m. today. The deployed linemen, tree trimmers and support staff are in the final stages of wrapping up restoration efforts following Tuesday’s snow storm in the mid-state areas. Currently, there are 332 customers in the mid-state areas without power.

The majority of outages resulted from heavy snow weighing down power lines and trees.

Ameren Missouri’s primary concern is the safety of customers and employees. Always call Ameren Missouri at 1.800.552.7583 or 911 if you see low-hanging or downed lines and assume all downed power lines are energized.
