Ameren Will Station Extra Crews to Prepare for Storm

Allison Blood

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Ameren says it will be stationing extra crews around the area if freezing rain remains in the forecast.

Distribution Operations Director Steve Brophy says it’s too early to know where they’ll station extra crews, but they’ll be monitoring the forecast all weekend.

“The main thing that we would be concerned about would be ice accumulation,” Brophy said. “That’s where the highest risk would be. That’s why the forecast and the tracking of this storm is important to us.

He says if you do have an outage, you can call Ameren’s hotline at 800-552-7583 for help.
