ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Power outages have forced several local schools to close early Wednesday. 

The Webster Groves Police Department said Webster High School and Hixson Middle School dismissed early on Feb. 14 because they were without power. 

Webster University said all day classes would be canceled and the campus would close at 11 a.m. due to the power outage. They said they are currently evaluating whether evening classes will still be held.

Ritenour Middle School was also closed due to the area power outage. 

Ameren said there were power outages across the area because the salt that was put on the roadways and sidewalks lifted into the atmosphere with the morning rain and was sticking to insulators.
