Severe storms hits Midwest with snow and ice, misses much of central Iowa
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Strong storms sweeping across the Midwest damaged homes and businesses in St. Louis, toppled mobile homes and ripped the roof off a Missouri church, while burying other areas in more than a foot of snow.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency after the Wednesday night storms. By Thursday morning, crews were out to determine if tornadoes were to blame for damage in St. Louis’ historic Hill area and other areas in eastern Missouri, according to the National Weather Service.
More than 24,000 utility customers are still without power in Missouri, mostly in the St. Louis area. There were scattered reports of injuries but no known fatalities.
