Ameren Missouri Deactivates Emergency Operations Center
Crews Restore Power to Customers Devastated by Tornado

Ameren Missouri has deactivated its Emergency Operations Center as of 4 p.m. Wednesday. Crews completed restoration to approximately 95,000 customers since a tornado tore a path through St. Charles and North St. Louis Counties on May 31.

“We know outages are difficult for our customers. We appreciate their understanding as our crews worked quickly and safely to restore power knocked out by the tornado,” said Michael Moehn, senior vice president, Customer Operations. “They replaced more than 400 damaged poles, repaired nine North St. Louis County substations, and thousands of lines powering customers’ homes and businesses.”

All total, Ameren Missouri deployed approximately 2,800 workers, including linemen, tree trimmers, field checkers, and crews from five states, to assist with restoration efforts.
