City Utilities of Springfield on Monday reported:
Damage was heaviest in the far south portion of the electric distribution system…especially around the James River Power Station.
There was also a moderate outage along the I-44 corridor from the last storm of the night.
It is hoped that power can be restored later today in the Eagles Gate, Millwood, and Highland Springs developments ...
Damage was done to five of the six transmission circuits feeding out of the James River Power Plant.
A large steel structure at the Lake Springfield Dam bluff was damaged along with at least 15 sets of insulators on a transmission circuit feeding out from the west side of the James River Power Station.
Nine distribution poles were lost in the area of the Highway 60 & 65 intersection. The wind in the Eagles Gate area was so strong it blew some ground- mounted transformers off their concrete pads.
