EARLIER REPORT: About 5,000 local MidAmerican Energy customers were without power Monday night, according to the company’s website.

The company is reporting about 2,900 customers without power on the Iowa side of the Quad-Cities and 2,100 on the Illinois side.

About 1,883 of those customers are in the LeClaire area, according to the website. Outages also are being reported in Davenport, Blue Grass, Bettendorf and rural Scott County.

On the Illinois side, 818 of the outages are reported in rural Henry County and 752 in the Coal Valley area. Outages also are reported in Andover, East Moline, Milan, Moline, Rock Island County and Mercer County.

A power outage halted the boy’s basketball game in Erie, Ill., between LaMoille and Indian Creek. The game was suspended in the second quarter, and will resume Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Tom Philip, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Davenport, said late afternoon rain turned to snow and then quickly froze, which may have caused ice to accumulate.

Philip said precipitation in the area ranged from half an inch to two inches.

A cold front dropped temperatures from daytime highs in the upper 50s to temperatures in the low to mid 20s by 9 p.m.

Philip said light flurries were possible overnight.
