More Than 350,000 Missouri Households and Businesses Still Without Power

DECEMBER 4, 2006 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - More than 350,000 customers were still without power today from the recent winter storm that brought down tree limbs and power lines.

That from the Ameren UE, which says the outages range in a 300-mile swath from Jackson, Missouri northeast to Pontiac, Illinois.

A spokeswoman for the company says about 200-thousand customers are in MIssouri. The other 150,000 customers are in Illinois.

Governor Blunt declared a state of emergency in St. Louis, the second time he's done that because of power outages this year.

The Missouri National Guard is checking in on some those without electricity. Blunt got a briefing from state emergency officials yesterday on the state's response to the storm and encouraged people in central Missouri to stay off the roads.
