Coffeen Residents Without Power Much Of Thursday

Residents of Coffeen were without power for much of the day Thursday.

WGEL spoke with an Ameren representative who explained the outage in the Coffeen area was due to a faulty transformer in the Filmore substation.  Crews determined, upon investigation, that the transformer could not be repaired and they brought in a mobile transformer from Belleville.  The mobile until will be in use until the transformer can be replaced.
