You can reinstall a fresh copy of the file in a couple of different ways.  The way I like is:

Turn off your server.

From Steam, choose Library, then Games.

Right click Wurm Unlimited from the list on the left, and choose Properties

Click Local files

Click "Verify integrity of game files"

It will go through a validation process.  If it finds something missing, you'll get a message like this:

     "1 file failed to validate and will be reacquired"

the map itself may have been corrupted in the power outage. any back up files?

Corrupting a map is really unlikely. Maybe it searches in the wrong location.

That error shows it's not just a corruption but in fact the layer file is missing completely.

 

You will need to restore it from a back-up (which any good server op should have set up to be on schedule), or as Batta mentioned reclaim it from the distributed map. Obviously you'll lose all landscape changes that have ever been made if you didn't restore from a back-up.
