ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis airport is shut down as crews clean up after an apparent tornado ripped away a large section of the roof of the main terminal.

Friday's storm caused several minor injuries at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport as people ran for shelter amid shattering glass. No fatalities were reported.

Flights into St. Louis were diverted to other locations, and it's not yet known when Lambert will reopen.

Elsewhere around St. Louis, residents in the suburbs of Maryland Heights and New Melle were dealing with damaged homes, fallen trees and downed power lines.
