  • Severe Missouri storms have left thousands without power, destroyed a mobile home and damaged numerous roofs.
    Ameren Missouri reported a high of about 37,000 outages Sunday afternoon, mostly in the St. Louis area. Power was gradually being restored.
    The National Weather Service says there is roof and shingle damage across parts of St. Louis and St. Louis County, as well as downed and uprooted trees. Roof damage also was reported at a Wentzville school.
    A trained spotter reported that a mobile home in Scott County was destroyed, but no one was injured.
    The damage comes as forecasters issue a series of tornado and thunderstorm warnings across a large swath of eastern Missouri and several other Midwestern states. Extensive damage has been reported in several Illinois communities.
