THE OFFICAL WORD ON POWER OUTAGE CAUSE IS, NO OFFICAL CAUSE
The official word from Ameren IP on the cause of Tuesday's power outage is…..no known cause. The outage took out more than 2,000 customers in Bond County and lasted between two and a half and almost four hours, depending on the area. According to an Ameren IP spokesman, there was no damage evident on any of the lines or at the substation. It can’t be said for sure, but the outage did not appear to be caused by the afternoon storm as the outage started before the storm. Ameren IP workmen checked the line and continue to check the substation for any clues to the outage.
