Ameren Missouri Prepares for Newest Winter Storm
Crews on Alert, Storm Trailers Ready for Deployment

Ahead of the latest round of severe winter weather forecast this weekend, Ameren Missouri has launched storm preparations. Ameren Missouri uses Quantum Weather, a customized weather service, to track the storm while alerting field crews for mobilization to all areas that may be affected. Crews are prepared to assess damage and respond as quickly as possible in case of outages. In addition, Ameren Missouri's storm trailers that carry equipment used to support restoration efforts are in position throughout its service territory.

“Quantum Weather, which we developed in partnership with St. Louis University, provides us with up-to-date information on weather conditions," said Michael Moehn, senior vice president, Ameren Missouri Customer Operations. “It enables us to be prepared and concentrate our resources in the areas with the most extreme weather potential so we may serve our customers quickly and safely. We will be constantly monitoring the system during the weekend so we can respond as rapidly as possible."

Safety remains a top priority for Ameren Missouri's customers and crews.

  • Always stay clear of downed power lines. They may still be energized.
  • Call Ameren Missouri at 1.800.552.7583 or 911 if downed lines are spotted
  • Stay inside if possible. Downed power lines may not be visible.
  • Stay clear of brush, shrubs and downed trees that may hide downed lines
