Power restored to several hundred in Cape Girardeau


Power has been restored to several hundred Ameren Missouri customers in Cape Girardeau.

According to Ameren Missouri's website Monday afternoon, 800 customers were without power in the Cape Girardeau area.

As of 6:10 p.m. only one outage was reported on Ameren's website for Cape Girardeau County.

Mark Hasheider with the Cape Girardeau Fire Department says a power failure has caused the outages

He says the Lutheran Home at 2825 Bloomfield in Cape was temporarily evacuated because the power failure caused the air conditioner to leave smoke in the facility. A spokesperson with the Lutheran Home says none of the residents were in any danger.

The outage is also affected businesses along Seimer's Drive in Cape Girardeau.
