Storm Kills 1 in Missouri

Fifty-mile-per-hour winds shattered the aluminum poles holding up a beer tent where fans were celebrating after a Cardinals game in St. Louis. Of the 200 people gathered under the tent, 1 was killed and 17 were hospitalized, with 5 seriously injured. The owner of the bar behind the tent says firefighters told him that a bolt of lightning that struck right after the winds was what killed the patron. He described the storm as so strong, it lifted the DJ’s 100-pound amplifier into the air. Missouri has been on storm warnings all day.
