KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Utility companies in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas worked throughout the night to restore power to thousands of customers after a storm packing heavy rain and strong winds moved through the state.
Ameren Missouri said about 20,800 customers lost power in its service area in eastern Missouri Wednesday night. By 5 a.m. Thursday, power had been restored to more than 80 percent of those customers.
Kansas City Power & Light reported 1,575 customers were without power early Thursday in its service area in the Kansas City metropolitan area, down from more than 6,000 Wednesday night.
The storm dumped more than 3 inches of rain in parts of northwest Missouri, including Kansas City and Warrensburg, with nearly 8 inches reported around Clinton.
