ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ameren Missouri says it has restored power to nearly all of the roughly 67,000 customers who lost electricity during strong storms and high winds.
The unsettled weather on Thursday brought wind gusts of over 60 miles per hour. Most of the outages to Ameren customers occurred in the St. Louis area.
The St. Louis-based utility said about 1,500 customers were still without electricity late Friday afternoon. Crews expected to have all power restored by late last night.
Ameren brought workers from other parts of Missouri to the St. Louis area to help with the recovery.
