ST. LOUIS – Ameren reports tens of thousands of power outages in Missouri and Illinois as tornado-warned storms rolled through the St. Louis area.

According to Ameren, around 34,000 customers from both sides of the state are without power as of 7:50 p.m. 

Tornado warnings were issued in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Jefferson and Franklin counties around 6 p.m. for nearly an hour. Many of these threats have moved east to Illinois. However, some threats still remain in both states, primarily thunderstorms and hail.
