ST. LOUIS (AP/KMOX) – Over 31,000 Ameren Corp. customers in the St. Louis area are without power after a strong thunderstorm hit the region, including Oakville, Chesterfield, Olivette, Hazelwood, Ferguson and Spanish Lake.
The storm Wednesday afternoon brought heavy rain, strong winds and golf ball-sized hail to some parts of the area. Most of the outages are in St. Louis County.
It wasn’t immediately clear if any significant damage had occurred.
Much of the St. Louis region, in both Missouri and Illinois, is under a thunderstorm warning.
