Storms leave downed trees and power lines from mid-Missouri to St. Louis


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 by 7:30 a.m., more than 9,000 Ameren Missouri customers were still without power.

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.
