Ameren Missouri has sent approximately 60 linemen, supervisors and support personnel to the East Coast to help restore power after the devastating snow storm that left more than three million homes and businesses in the dark in at least five states. Ameren Missouri personnel will assist Northeast Utilities in the Hartford, Ct. area.
The Ameren Missouri personnel sent to the East Coast are from the St. Louis metro area, as well as central, north and southeast Missouri. They left at 6 a.m. today, and are expected to be gone up to 10 days.
