Winds Take Roof Off Home in The Hill Neighborhood

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The storm that hit the area Wednesday night blew the roof off of a house in the 5600 block of Columbia in The Hill neighborhood of south St. Louis.

Captain Dan Sutter says two people were home at the time.

“The home has significant damage to it. No injuries reported at this time. We’re still fully trying to assess the scene, we got a number of trees down here in the street, a couple cars covered in trees,” he said.

Sutter said those two people took shelter in the basement and, remarkably, were not hurt.

The latest report is that two homes were severely damaged and six others suffered more minor damage.
