At about 3:15 p.m., an Ameren transmission line failure interrupted power to three Southwestern Electric substations, affecting 3,000 members in Madison and St. Clair counties.

The outage is affecting members south of Worden, east of Edwardsville, west of Grantfork, and north of Lebanon.

Southwestern linemen are working with Ameren crews to resolve the issue. No estimated time of restoration is available at this time.
