Okay. Remaining calm.
There was one long-event tornado (North) and it stimulated probably one other. The other was a semi-long event tornado (South) that merged with North to make a massive bow front storm with straight line winds into Illinois.
We were in the middle of it all (North) and the storm held together very well for many, many miles. Probably due to the humidity and rain St. Louis was experiencing. It fed the storm. When the tornado passed overhead we had extreme pressure drop with ears hurting. Our immed area was ok but a few miles away sustained major damage in neighborhoods.
Lambert Airport will probably re-open by tomorrow.
Thankfully there were no serious injuries.
Sunrise Saturday morning revealed massive amounts of damage across the St. Louis area in the wake of a tornado or torandos that raced across the area Friday night. The damage is just starting to be assessed.
The worst appears to have occurred in the Bridgeton area in Norht St. Louis County. The Harmann Estates subdivision off Old St. Charles Rock Road. Over a dozen homes are completely destroyed in the area of Beaverton Drive.
Much of the debris from those houses ended up just to the east on Taylor Drive, where several more homes suffered significant damage. A race against the clock was underway Saturday morning to get tarps on rooves before more rain moved in. www.fox2now.com...

Thanks for the update Ad
Glad to hear the news!
St. Louis’ International Airport was closed Saturday after a tornado swept through a terminal, injuring several people and forcing the airport to be closed indefinitely.
There was extensive damage to the airport's busiest terminal, where 40 to 50 percent of glass was blown in, according to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport Spokesman Jeff Lea.
Mayor Francis Slay said Lambert would be shut down "indefinitely," impacting 256 daily departures and arrivals from the facility. www.foxnews.com...

Looks like your into sensationalism. The airport is hardly wiped out and will be just fine. I'm surprised you haven't connected this to HAARP in some way yet but at least it's a break from all the earthquake doom and gloom, which isn't coming true yet by the way.
ST. LOUIS • The National Weather Service reports that the storm that ripped through the region Friday was the worst it has seen in more than 40 years.
The last time the area saw such severe and widespread damage was on Jan. 24., 1967, when a tornado traveled 21 miles across St. Louis County following an eerily similar path.
That was the fourth-worst tornado in history to hit the St. Louis metropolitan area, according to the weather service. www.stltoday.com...
