ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lambert Field in St. Louis has been closed after an apparent tornado tore through the airport, lifting a roof off the terminal and injuring several people.Broadcast reports, citing airport officials, said most of the injuries Friday night were believed to be minor.
Airport officials say the airport was shut down and planes were diverted to other locations.
Crews were assessing damage at all the terminals. Plate glass windows were torn out, largely in Concourse C, where the most of the damage appeared to occur.
UPDATE: Some one has posted a photo from inside the terminal. From the looks of it the airport will be closed for a good part of the day tomorrow.Television footage showed pieces of twisted metal outside the terminal.
