Yes, stay safe, and I mean by much more than safety glasses. about 1" hail has been seen and there was a tornado warning. Does anyone local know somewhere online to get a current weather radar? I can only find one from about 5:30…
The National Weather Service is keeping a close eye on any weather developments. There was a Tornado Warning earlier, but was canceled shortly afterwards as the storm moved out of the area. The St. Louis area is still under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 7pm, and Tornado Watch until 10pm tonight, unless canceled early or extended longer.
That was the first storm and we were all just finding out about that one when the 2nd one hit.
Where I was there was no warning and all of a sudden, baseball-sized hail. My family has 2 damaged cars and a damaged house. And they are not alone in their community. All of the neighbors came out to check on each other. It looked like it had snowed yards full of baseball snow. Bizarre.
Myself and other alumni, who were fed up with what was going on on Einstein, found out about the weather and were forced to stay by event security. Also there were some discrete signs on the video banners on parts of the arena about the weather. You were not allowed on the concourse.
I was at the nearby T.G.I. Fridays when it hit. First I heard the tornado sirens going off and then it started to hail. A horse and carriage was caught in it. I hope the horse and driver are OK.
I saw Quarter size hail.
My car looks like someone took a ball peen hammer to it :ahh:
I didn’t like the communication at the finale. There was a tornado less than 30 minutes away and we were all left clueless besides the, “severe weather: please stay in edward jones dome.” Maybe it’s just me…
We were on the ending edge of the tornado warning, they removed people from the upper-deck from what I heard. Saying tornado warning in a stadium like that would be like the same as yelling fire, mass panic would have happened. Security was having a tough time as it was keeping people away from the windows.
