Power restored to most area residents affected by winter storm
Twenty-nine customers of Black River Electric Cooperative, primarily in Madison and Bollinger counties, were without power around 11 a.m. Wednesday, down from around 100 earlier in the day. Customers of Ameren Missouri and Citizens Electric Corporation who had lost power after Tuesday's winter storm, had their power restored.
Black River spokesman John Singleton said remaining outages were more of an individual nature and each had to be inspected separately.
"We anticipate having everyone back on today unless the winds pick up and we have new outages," Singleton said Wednesday morning.
He encourages people to report new outages by calling 800-392-4711 and warns the public should stay away from downed power lines.
