3 tornados confirmed in St. Louis area; leave path of destruction

ST. LOUIS—The National Weather Service confirms three tornadoes were part of the Friday night storm that raked portions of the St. Louis area, damaging hundreds of homes but causing no serious injuries.

The weather service’s Jayson Gosselin says a 1,000-yard-wide twister that hit portions of St. Charles County and portions of north St. Louis County was an EF-3, which has winds between 136 and 165 mph.

Authorities said the tornado went on a 22-mile damage path through the southern and eastern parts of St. Charles into north St. Louis County.

The tornado started in Weldon Spring Heights and moved east through Harvester, Earth City, Bridgeton and Ferguson. Its end point has not been determined.
