Some without power in southern Illinois outage
Ameren Illinois says an outage for Vienna, Brookport and Metropolis started around 8:30 a.m. Friday. Power has been restored to some areas, but others are still without power.
A spokeswoman says Ameren was able to to restore power in Vienna and Brookport using “automatic switching,” but Metropolis is still without power.
Crews are working to find out why the power is out, and we’re told it won’t be until that assessment is done that they can restore power.
There is not yet an estimated time for when the lights will be back on.
