BELLEFONTAINE NEIGHBORS, MO (KTVI) – Tuesday night's storm knocked out power to thousands of Ameren customers in the St. Louis area. A third of those affected live in Bellefontaine Neighbors.

Ameren says customers in north St. Louis County should have power returned by mid-day, but those in the Fenton area will likely have power restored by the afternoon.

Two elementary schools are closed Wednesday due to power outages. Gibson and Highland Elementary Schools in the Riverview Gardens have no power.
