and I at the last minute decided to follow and
overtake a storm that busted through St. Louis.
This storm was a long, lasting derecho that
had 70-90mph out of the odd direction of
Northeast to Southwest. This storm also had
some embedded tornado warnings. The major
extent of this storm was the wind damage that
downed numerous trees, many of which fell across
the road and onto personal property as well as
taking out many power lines. The biggest
damage occurred in the southern part of the City
of St. Louis, in the Soulard Area.
