Five stores in the Chesterfield Mall had their Black Friday sales interrupted by a water main break.

The break affected Express, New York & Company, CJ Banks, Lenscrafters and "I don't want to kiss a llama". A

mall spokesman says the break caused a power outage. The stores are closed until the outage is resolved. There is no timetable for when power will be restored.

   Storms that swept across the Midwest left at least six people dead and unleashed powerful winds that flattened neighborhoods, flipped over cars and uprooted trees.

   The National Weather Service has confirmed preliminary EF-4 tornado damage about 50 miles east of St. Louis near New Minden, Illinois -- where two people were killed.  

   Washington, a town of 16,000 about 170 miles north of St. Louis, appeared to have the most severe damage.  State Trooper Dustin Pierce says the tornado there cut a path about an eighth of a mile wide from one side of town to the other. Entire blocks of Washington were leveled.  One person was killed.  The National Guard has been called in to police the damaged neighborhoods.

   Three others died in Massac County in far southern Illinois.

   It wasn't tornadoes, but straight line winds that  brought down trees and power lines on the Missouri side of the St. Louis metro area. 

   Two empty buildings reportedly toppled in the City of St. Louis.

   In Wentzville, Heritage Primary Elementary school will open Monday, despite having parts of its roof blown off. The students will reportedly be moved to different classrooms.  

   The wind is being blamed for several interstate accidents, including one involving an overturned semi that closed the Poplar Street Bridge for several hours and an eight-car pile up along the I-70 depressed section downtown.  

 

   Crews are still working to clear downed trees, power lines and other debris from some St. Louis area roads.  Drivers are urged to use caution this morning as traffic signals remain out at some intersections and some streets may still be littered with debris.

  The power is still out for many in the St. Louis area as well.  At the height of the storm, Ameren was reporting more than 50,000 metro-area customers were affected.  Ameren opened an emergency operations center Sunday afternoon and crews have been working all day to restore power.  

   At 3:00 a.m, more than 6,700 Ameren Missouri customers and just over 2,500 metro-east customers were still in the dark.

A massive amount of untreated sewage found its way into the Mississippi River Wednesday.

The spill, which happened at an MSD Treatment Plant in North St. Louis, released 3.5 million gallons of wastewater. Officials with the Metropolitan Sewer District say the plant suffered a power outage just after noon on Wednesday. Within two hours, officials say they restored power and operations resumed.

MSD says any spill is unacceptable, but they are confident there is a minimal risk to the health of people or the environment. The spill occurred in a part of the river not commonly used for recreation and drinking water suppliers commonly test for bacteria. An incident report has been filed with the Department of Natural Resources.

The Saint Louis Art Museum is going to remain closed for the rest of the day due to a power outage.

The outage started just before 9 AM. Just a few visitors were in the museum when the power went out. It is not known what caused the outage. The museum is set to open tomorrow at 10 AM.
