LACLEDE COUNTY, Missouri- Laclede Electric Cooperative has provided the following update on utility restoration following Saturday’s storms:

As of 8:00 PM this evening, our workforce has worked 30 straight hours and some even longer. For the safety of our lineman they have been sent home to get some rest and will begin the restoration effort again at 6:00 AM tomorrow morning.

Currently, 759 members remain without power. To ensure that we have all the remaining outages, we ask that members without power call in to report it again tomorrow morning.

“Thank you to all our members for their patience and understanding as crews have worked around the clock to repair the devastating damage of yesterday’s storms.”
