ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Ameren Illinois crews and support staff have been working around the clock to undo the damage done by the season’s first winter storm that blew through the area Thursday.

The storm knocked out power to over 47,000 residents. So far, Ameren crews have restored power to approximately 40,521 homes. About 6,800 customers are still without power.

Ameren officials anticipate that all customers in the Illinois News 4 viewing area will have their power restored by Friday evening. However, outages my last longer if weather and working conditions deteriorate.
