Some Ameren customers in Springfield lost power Wednesday morning after the latest round of winter weather passed through.

The utility’s outage map says more than 300 customers with Springfield zip codes were without power following the system, which produced high winds and some ice.

Ameren says its Emergency Operations Center was activated around 6:00 Wednesday morning.
