When power will be restored to Rock Island & Scott Counties
Update: As of 9 a.m., 204 Illinois Quad Citians still had no power, and 1,066 Iowa Quad Citians had no power.
Rock Island County & Scott County: MidAmerican Energy estimated that service would be restored by 6 p.m. to most customers. Any residents who still don’t have power after that can expect it to be on by mid-morning Wednesday.
After storms rushed through the Quad Cities, thousands of residents were left without power.
Just after 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, March 8, 2017, MidAmerican Energy was reporting less than 1,100 residents in the Iowa Quad Cities and Illinois Quad Cities without power. That number was much higher earlier in the morning though.
At one point, Davenport had more than 8,800 residents in the dark.
MidAmerican said the outages were due to severe weather and damage, including broken poles and downed power lines. Crews were working to restore power, but there was no estimated time of restoration.
