Ameren MO deactivates Emergency Operations Center

MISSOURI (KFVS) - Ameren Missouri has deactivated its Emergency Operations Center as of 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 8.

"The arctic cold posed a challenge to our crews who worked throughout the day and night restoring power as safely and quickly as possible," said Michael Moehn, senior vice president, Customer Operations for Ameren Missouri. "Ameren Missouri appreciates its customers' patience while our crews restored power."
