Severe storms that tore across Missouri left property damage and power outages behind, hitting especially hard in the south eastern portion of the state. HOEC had 1,000 members without power (mostly in Shannon County). Crews worked through the night, leaving just 140 remaining this morning. Downed trees and broken poles led to the outages (see photos from this morning, below).

We appreciate the patience of our members while our team works to restore all power safely.
