ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Heavy winds have caused several power lines to be knocked down around the St. Louis metropolitan area which has resulted in power outages on Wednesday.

An Ameren UE spokesman says there were 2,600 weather-related outages in the St. Louis region as of 5:40 p.m.  Nearly half of the outages were in north St. Louis County.

Ameren UE hopes to restore power by tonight as the winds die down.
