Ameren continues to make progress restoring power

Tuesday, 04 June 2013 03:22 Published in Local News

   Good news for those still cleaning up from Friday's storms.  Ameren reports that the power has been restored to almost all electric customers in St. Charles County and the metro-east.  

   Steady progress is also being made to repair damage in infrastructure in St. Louis County where an EF-3 tornado took down more than a hundred power poles.  Ameren officials say more than 500 poles were damaged area wide.  

   Ameren's Michael Moehn says it's been a big job with a big price tag. "Roughly speaking we're probably spending about  $3 million a day to put the system back together." Moehn says eventually that cost will be passed along to consumers.

   As of 2:50 a.m. Tuesday, about 14,000 St. Louis County residents remain in the dark.  That's down from more than 35,000 Monday morning and well over 90,000 on Friday.  

 

   Flooding along the Mississippi River is forcing some St. Charles County residents out of their homes.  That's because the Lincoln-Shield levee along the Mississippi River was breached Monday evening.  

   West Alton officials and the Rivers Pointe Fire Chief issued an alert about 8:30 p.m. advising residents to evacuate.  The evacuation order is voluntary, not mandatory.

   The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings for eastern St. Charles County through 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. The weather service also warned that “residents living on streams and creeks should take immediate precautions.”  

   The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that southbound Highway 67 was closed between the Clark Bridge and Highway 94 as a result of the flooding after a temporary barricade erected by MoDOT failed.  Northbound 67 remains open at this hour. 

 

Solar-powered plane lands at Lambert Airport

Tuesday, 04 June 2013 02:17 Published in Local News

   The Solar Impulse is on the ground at Lambert Airport.  

   The solar-powered airplane took off Monday morning from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport bound for St. Louis -- some 560 miles away.  The plane landed at Lambert about 1:30 Tuesday morning.

   The project was aimed at building a solar-powered airplane that could fly day and night without fuel.   They succeeded with a 21-hour 21-minute flight to St. Louis, the longest so far for Solar Impulse.  

   The storms that swept through St. Louis Friday night damaged a hangar that was going to house the plane while at Lambert, and that created another opportunity for the Solar Impulse team.  They deployed the plane's own inflatable hangar for the first time during a mission. The revolutionary, ultra-light structure was designed for use during their planned flight around the world in 2015.
