Per Twitter, some people cut by flying glass
I took my Air Force maintenance Q/A training at that base.
Friday evening,, lots of traffic around.. here’s where emergency planning can pay off.. Prayers BumP!
Most likely cut the number of flights per day in half for at least a month.
One can get live radio update here:
And the airport is now offically closed due to tornado damage.
Scanner audio for police and fire here...
“Scanner audio for police and fire here.”
Not much use to me..I am in Asia, hahaha
I use radiotime.com to hook me up with any radio station in the world.
It is a great service, and I use it to get all the talkers.
That shuttle is always late anyways
We can only hope there were no passengers on that van. And that the report of only some glass cuts is as bad as it gets. I never trust early reports.
Lots of ppl injured by flying glass. Highway 270 is a parking lot due to power lines down. Nasty little storm this was.
I got a breaking news tweet that said among other things semi standing on end. WOW!
Boy, do I feel fortunate!
Tornado causes injuries at St. Louis airport
ST. LOUIS Several people at Lambert Airport in St. Louis were injured Friday after an apparent tornado touched down, spewing debris over the airfield, bursting glass in the concourse and damaging cars atop a parking garage.
The tornado was part of a series of strong storms that struck central and eastern Missouri. Unconfirmed tornadoes were reported in several counties in the St. Louis area.
