Lights Finally Flickering Back On

Posted by Warren Krech on March 1, 2013

It appears utility crews have finally gotten ahead of the winter weather. Boone Electric Cooperative reported at about midnight Friday, power was back for all its customers. That’s down from a peak of about 13,000 that were in the dark for a while, some since Tuesday. Ameren Missouri and Columbia Water & Light already caught up earlier in the week.

However, west of Cole County, Co-Mo Electric Cooperative still has some work to do. More than 3,000 customers didn’t have power as of 4:30 Friday morning. Crews from 20 electrical co-ops are on the scene trying to get the lights back on.
