FLORISSANT, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Hundreds of residents in Florissant, Missouri are without power after a transformer blew late Tuesday night.
Ameren Missouri reports that 360 customers in the Pleasant Hollow Subdivision are currently without power. Apparently, a transformer blew around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, knocking out the power.
Ameren said it took crews a while to reach the damaged transformer because it is in a heavily wooded area. Crews have cleared a path to the site and expect to have everything fixed and power restored by 1 or 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon.
