ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nearly 7,300 Ameren Missouri residents are still without power following storms and high wind in eastern Missouri.

The unsettled weather on Thursday brought wind gusts of 60 mph and more. Most of the outages are in the St. Louis area.

Ameren said Friday that nearly 44,000 customers were affected at the peak of the outages. Officials with the St. Louis-based utility say crews are working as quickly as possible.

Several power lines were knocked down by the winds. Ameren officials encourage people to stay away from downed lines.
