Laclede Electric restores power near SR; Waynesville working on lines
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (June 16, 2009) — An electric substation power problem that knocked out power to about 2,100 residents east of St. Robert turned out to be a fuse issue, Laclede Electric Cooperative spokesman Byron Dudley said Tuesday evening.

Dudley said the outage began about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday and was fixed by 6:30 p.m. Anyone in the Laclede Electric service territory who still has no power should call Laclede Electric to report the problem, he said.

That outage affected the Hickory Valley subdivision that’s partly within the St. Robert city limits, and runs north along Highway 28 to Gasconade River to Devil’s Elbow, and then along the south side of Interstate 44 and Highway Z and Teak Lane to CR 1729 in Phelps County.

In Waynesville, City Administrator Bruce Harrill said Tuesday evening that city utility crews continue to work to restore power. The Rigsby Apartments and about 50 individual homes were still without power as of 6:45 p.m., he said.

Harrill said most of the city’s electric power problems were due to trees that fell and knocked down power lines, in the process doing additional damage. Several power poles were knocked down and had to be replaced as well.

Until the late afternoon outage, most of Pulaski County outside the city of Waynesville didn’t lose electric service or was out for only brief periods. St. Robert city officials reported that power was restored to nearly all customers shortly after Monday’s storm ended; Richland city officials said they had no reports of serious outages. Gascosage Electric Cooperative personnel, who serve northern Pulaski County including the cities of Dixon and Crocker reported Tuesday afternoon that only one customer was without power.
