Storm causes damage in mid-Missouri, St. Louis area

June 21, 2021 GMT

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Several parts of Missouri are cleaning up after strong overnight storms.

Downed trees and power lines were common in mid-Missouri’s Audrain, Boone and Callaway counties after a thunderstorm with strong winds whipped through the region late Sunday.

The same storm moved into the St. Louis area early Monday. There were no reports of injuries but thousands of homes lost power, some for several hours.

The storms were the result of a cold front that ushered in temperatures nearly 30 degrees cooler than the upper-90s heat of Sunday. Temperatures on Monday were expected to barely get into the 70s in St. Louis.
