Storms Knock Out Power, Topple Trees

Greg Branson

UNDATED (KMOX) – Ameren is working to restore power to more than 2,000 area residents after Saturday’s storms. 

More than 2,100 customers were without service in St. Louis City and County, as of Sunday morning.  In Illinois… 234 customers were without service in Madison County.

The small micro-bursts are blamed for knocking down trees and power lines in south St. Louis County near Jefferson Barracks.

In Bethalto, Illinois… officials ordered an evacuation of the Homecoming event.  The storm quickly passed and the crowd returned.
