UPDATE 1:32 PM:
Power outages have decreased to just under 1400.
Over 5,000 customers in St. Louis city are reporting power outages at this time.
That includes the corridor of Hampton between Forest Park and I-44. We also got calls that the St. Louis Zoo was without power. A Zoo official tells KTRS News they are moving visitors out of the areas with animals--the animals are fine, but visitor buildings have no lights on. Visitors are allowed to wait in the Living World exhibit.
The outages are affecting customers in the zip codes of 63110, 63116, and 63139.
