Public Works Dept: Transmission feed went down, half of Jackson lost power

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

About half of the city of Jackson, Missouri was without power on Monday, Oct. 19, according to the Jackson Public Works Department.

Department officials say this happened just before 4 p.m. and lasted for about 20 minutes.

This affected the eastern part of Jackson.

According to department officials, Ameren crews were working at a sub station in the Wedekind subdivision when a main transmission feed went down.

Jeff Trammel with Ameren said about 1,500 people were affected. He said it was mainly Jackson residents and businesses.

According to Trammel, other people outside of Jackson that were affected experienced an outage of less than 5 minutes.

Emily Sikes at Saint Francis Hospital in Cape Girardeau said the hospital also experienced an outage. She said the backup power did come on until power was fully restored.
