Bond County Linemen Assisting Madison County Crews
Friday, May 19, 2017

8:45 a.m.

About 200 Madison County members are without power this morning after a powerful thunderstorm brought down trees, broke poles and power lines, and tripped breakers throughout the county. Bond County crews have been deployed to assist Madison County linemen with repairs.

As of 8:40 a.m., outages were concentrated south of Interstate 70 along Lower Marine Road, off Staunton Road north of Highway 143, along Highway 140 between Bethalto and St. James Drive, south of Holiday Lake, and along Seiler Road at Prairietown Road and Old Moro Road.
