According to Ameren Missouri spokesperson Brian Daniels, the power outage in Hurdland last night was due to an equipment malfunction, which caused a pole to catch on fire. The pole was located one mile west of Hurdland.
“We had a problem with a pole. We replaced that pole. It was in a difficult to access area,” said Daniels. “There were 152 people effected by the outage. Power was lost at approximately midnight. Sometime around midday we got (power) restored.”

*Previous Story Below
We have received reports at The Edina Sentinel office that Hurdland or parts of Hurdland were without power all night December 22-23, 2014, due to a broken power line.
We have not been able to confirm this information with Ameren Missouri representatives.
According to a rural Hurdland resident the power went out at approximately 7:00 p.m. Monday evening, December 22, and didn’t come back on until approximately 12:30 p.m. the following day.
It is unknown how many people were effected by the outage, or if the outage extended to other areas. We have a call in to Ameren Missouri and are hoping to hear back from them today.
More information will be released when it becomes available.
