St. Louis Airport Reopens After Tornado

The St. Louis airport reopened Sunday, two days after a tornado damaged a few planes, blew out windows and threw a bus onto the roof, the Associated Press reported.

Officials said that around 70 percent of the scheduled flights would still arrive and depart, the Washington Post said. Concourse C, which suffered the most damage, is expected to open in a few months.

The tornado damaged about 750 homes in the St. Louis area and left nearly 26,000 people without power. Gov. Jay Nixon said that the lack of serious injuries felt like "divine intervention."
