St. Louis, MO – Officials at AmerenUE say most of the customers affected by Tuesday's severe storm should have power back on by Thursday morning the latest.
Fifty-two thousand customers were without electricity immediately following the storms, which also caused damage to several local buildings. UE officials said nearly 85 percent had service restored in the first 12 hours.
Outages were concentrated in University City, Clayton, Ladue and north St. Louis County, said Ameren spokesman Mike Cleary.
Jefferson City, MO – The State Capitol Building in Jefferson City is getting a new roof.
The project is scheduled to begin next week and cost $2.1 million.
Jeff Schaeperkoetter oversees repairs to state office buildings.
"The previous roof has failed...we've done some temporary measures to make sure that it holds the water out...it's a project that's going to probably take us about four or five months," Schaeperkoetter said.
