Tornadoes hit eastern Mo. on Tuesday
BOWLING GREEN, Mo. -- Tornadoes swept through eastern Missouri, damaging homes and yanking down power lines, but no injuries were reported.
The Pike County Sheriff's Department said the storm hit the Bowling Green area late Tuesday afternoon, and that three tornadoes were seen in the county in a 45-minute period. Some homes in the Clarksville area had roof damage, and barns and outbuildings in rural Pike County also were damaged.
The Bollinger County Sheriff's Department in Southeast Missouri said a rural home was reported damaged, but it was unclear if there were injuries.
Tornadoes were also reported on the ground near the Jefferson-St. Louis County line. Hail pelted Busch Stadium, where the Cardinals' game was delayed. Lambert Airport in St. Louis was closed for a time Tuesday night.
More rain is forecast Thursday into early next week.
