Friday, January 17, 2020

11:10 p.m.

Southwestern Electric and Ameren personnel are working to isolate the source of an outage affecting more than 2,000 cooperative members tonight. Shortly before 10:30 p.m., 2,270 members in Madison County lost power when an Ameren transmission line providing power to the co-op’s Edwardsville and Fruit substations failed.

Ameren crews are working with the co-op’s engineering and operations personnel to identify the source of the fault.

No estimated time of restoration was available.
