About 1,100 north end customers served by the Taintor Road substation were restored around 3:45 Monday afternoon. CWLP spokeswoman Amber Sabin says a downed tree near Camp Sangamo Road and 8th Street was likely the cause.

Ameren also reported problems with thousands of customers throughout the listening area.
