Homes in south St. Louis County without power for two days

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – It’s been two days since residents in some south St. Louis County homes have been without power after Wednesday’s storms knocked down trees and lines.

Ameren officials say they expect Oakville to be back online soon. The power outage is extensive due to tree damage in the area.

Not only are crews repairing lines, but also clearing downed trees.

“It’s been brutal. It’s hot and I have dogs in there,” said Joyce Koch, an Oakville resident. “We had to go buy battery-operated fans. It’s not doing any good.”

Officials say 8,100 people in Missouri and 3,100 in the Metro East are still without power.
