Ameren Missouri Closes Emergency Operations Center
Crews Complete Restoration Efforts

Ameren Missouri closed its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 12 p.m. today following completion of power restoration efforts by its crews for customers who lost power when a series of storms rolled through the region Thursday.

Approximately 24,000 of the 1.2 million customers in Ameren Missouri's service territory lost power over the course of the storm. At its peak, some 6,500 customers were without power. High winds and heavy rains were responsible for most of the damage to Ameren Missouri power lines. The hardest hit area was University City in St. Louis County, where a tornado touched down in the pre-dawn hours of Thursday, April 3. According to the National Weather Service, no one was injured.

Any customers who remain without power as of noon Friday are asked to call 1.800.552.7583 or go to AmerenMissouri.com/Outage to report their outage.
