Thousands without power the day after storms
Nearly 10,000 MidAmerican Energy customers remained without power the day after strong storms moved through the Quad Cities area.
More than 30,000 outages were reported by MidAmerican Energy a few hours after storms struck the area Monday, June 24, 2013.
The outages were widespread with Davenport, East Moline and Moline hardest hit. Some people whose power remained out said they were being told it could take until Wednesday afternoon for service to be restored. Restoration timing was dependent upon the source of the outage.
