For the third week in a row, St. Louis area residents are cleaning up after weekend storms pounded the metro area. Storms on both Saturday and Sunday brought strong winds, lightening and heavy rain to St. Louis. Flash flooding an issue on many roads over the weekend. The metro-east was hit especially hard, with the National Weather Service reporting 50-mile-per-hour wind gusts and nearly 4-inches of rainfall in about three hours in St. Clair County yesterday. The deluge left up to a foot of standing water on some roads. St. Charles and Warren counties in Missouri were also hit hard with nearly 2-and-a-half inches of rain falling in just two hours. The rain caused a three-hour delay at Busch Stadium and prompted the Muny to cancel the last performance of "Spamalot" last night.
