Tornado Touches Down in St. Louis – Lightning Strikes the Gateway Arch
Several homes were damaged after a tornado touched down in St. Louis.
The storm that hit the area Wednesday night blew the roof off of a house in the 5600 block of Columbia in The Hill neighborhood of south St. Louis.
Captain Dan Sutter says two people were home at the time.
“The home has significant damage to it. No injuries reported at this time. We’re still fully trying to assess the scene, we got a number of trees down here in the street, a couple cars covered in trees,” he said.
