ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ameren Missouri says it has restored power to nearly all of the roughly 67,000 customers who lost electricity during strong storms and high winds.
The unsettled weather on Thursday brought wind gusts of over 60 miles per hour. Most of the outages to Ameren customers occurred in the St. Louis area.
The St. Louis-based utility said about 1,500 customers were still without electricity late Friday afternoon. Crews expected to have all power restored by late last night.
Ameren brought workers from other parts of Missouri to the St. Louis area to help with the recovery.
St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A man accused of taking part in a deadly robbery in the Central West End, is set to appear in court today.
Johnathan Perkins is charged with second-degree murder connected to the shooting death of Megan Boken. Keith Esters pleaded guilty in November and was given life in prison.
Prosecutors say the two tried to steal Boken's cell phone in 2012 and ended up shooting and killing her.
