No Deaths in St. Louis Tornado

The St. Louis area tornado destroyed nearly 100 homes and was te strongest in 44 years, but no one was killed or seriously hurt, the Star Tribune reported.

The tornado hit an airport and shattered most of its windows at the main terminal, yet the airport was able to open again less than 24 hours later.

No deaths and the airport reopening so quickly after the tonado was said to be because of the early warnings, common sense, and good timing.

There was a 34 minute warning before the tornado struck, which many say that that warning saved lives.
