SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - About 210,000 Missouri customers are still without power, mainly in the southwest part of the state.

The White House has declared a major disaster area in 34 counties and St. Louis.

Officials say power is still out to 34,000 Ameren customers in St. Louis area, 25,000 in Springfield and 151,000 others in southwest Missouri.

Springfield Mayor Tom Carlson says the city is in the recovery phase.

The storms spread ice and sleet from Friday through Sunday, and contributed to at least nine deaths in Missouri.

Seven were traffic-related, but state officials say one death each in southwest Missouri's Lawrence and Jasper counties are blamed on carbon monoxide exposure.
