Thousands of Lake area residents are still without power and for some of them it may be the weekends before their lights come back on. Co-Mo’s John Agliata:
Two dozen Co-Mo crews are being assisted by personnel from other electric cooperatives around the state.
Beth Wright, with the Missouri Department of Transportation, says MoDOT maintenance crews are working around the clock to clear the roads:
She says the’re making steady progress…now clearing more rural roads, and pushing back snow piles on bridges, ramps and intersections and along highway guard rails.
Due to a power outage caused by the storm, Ivy Bend Public Water Supply District No. 2 officials have announced a voluntary water boil notice for the next 24 hours until the system is clear. Water pressure dropped below 20 pounds when the power was out. State regulations require them to issue a voluntary 24-hour boil advisory as the system starts back up.

Thousands of Lake area residents are still without electricity as a result of the heavy, wet snow bringing down power lines. Co-Mo was particularly hard hit. As of early Wednesday morning, more than 11,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity. Co-Mo’s John Agliata says crews worked late into the evening to restore power to as many members as possible, and the work will resume at 6 a.m.:
LeClede Electric Cooperative reported power had been restored to its approximately 800 members who lost it by late afternoon. About half of those affected were in the Camdenton area.
Ameren Missouri says fewer than one percent of its customers were still without power Tuesday night.
