    UPDATE: As of 3 p.m., the number is down to 709 customers without power in eastern Iowa.

    Approximately 2,500 people are without power in eastern Iowa.

    Alliant Energy's outage map says 2,505 customers are without power as of 11:24 a.m. The hardest hit areas are in Poweshiek, Washington and Keokuk counties.

    The wintry mix, combined with high winds is causing power lines to freeze over.

    At time of writing, MidAmerican Energy had about 20 customers without power. Linn County REC only had 1 customer without power.
