   A tiny puppy is safe again after St. Louis firefighters rescued him from a 10 foot deep storm drain.  

   Crews were called to the 4900 block of Theodore in north St. Louis this morning after a teacup chihuahua named "Storm" fell down the drain while playing in the front yuard of a home.  Storm's owner says the two pound puppy was trying to jump over the storm drain vent when it fell in.  

   It took more than an hour for fire crews to pull the puppy out.  

   The dog appears to be okay, but will be checked by a vet.

Joplin rebuilding costs top $1 billion

 

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Costs of rebuilding and repairs since the May 2011 tornado that hit Joplin and Duquesne have topped $1 billion.
 
The Joplin Globe reports the city of Joplin recorded just over $991 million in repairs and new construction since the tornado, with another $46 million for two school projects just outside city limits and an estimated $5 million in Duquesne.
 
The May 22, 2011 tornado did millions of dollars in damage and killed 161 people in Joplin and Duquesne, a village about just east of Joplin.
 
Joplin officials say the rebuilding signified that most people decided to stay, rather than leave the devastated area. The city of Joplin reported a population decline of only 4 to 4.5 percent from its pre-tornado census of 50,150.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - The winter storm may have moved out of the St. Louis area, but as it pushes toward the East Coast, it is causing problems for air travel.

 

Lambert canceled over 130 flights Sunday, and today there are already nearly 30 cancellations as of 6 AM. That number could rise throughout the day as the storm arrives east.

 

Lambert encourages travelers to check with air carriers before heading out the door.

Missouri Department of Transportation officials are advising Missourians to stay home during tomorrow's storm and have issued a "no travel advisory".

 

In a release, MoDOT says that once the storm arrives, travel will quickly become dangerous. A MoDOT engineer says that once the snow starts falling, it will be easier for plows to clear roads if there are fewer vehicles on the streets. This storm is expected to shape up much like heavy snow that fell last year.

 

MoDOT officials say the problems on roads were compounded last year when employers sent workers home early--the additional cars slowed traffic in many areas to a standstill.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Forecasters are urging Missourians to brace for a wicked round of winter weather that's about to hit.

The National Weather Service said Friday that a winter storm could dump nearly a foot of snow on the St. Louis region over the weekend, with significant but lesser amounts elsewhere.

Bitter cold is coming, too, with readings well below zero Sunday night and Monday night. Wind chills could reach as low as minus-35 degrees.

The weather service said Saturday is expected to start off mild, with temperatures in the 40s. Then a nasty cold front arrives. Rain will turn into snow starting Saturday and it will continue into Sunday. Several inches are also possible in southern Missouri, and about 5 inches is projected in mid-Missouri.

Cuomo says plans are for the highways to reopen at 5 a.m. Friday, but a decision will be made by 4 a.m.

He says mass transit isn't expected to be hampered.

Missouri works to dig out from snowstorm

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A large swath of southern Missouri is working to dig out from a storm that has coated the region with a mix of snow, ice and sleet.

The National Weather Service says that from Thursday to Friday, 6 to 12 inches of snow fell in areas of the state south of Interstate 44, with some of the heaviest accumulations recorded near the Missouri-Arkansas state line.

Another storm system was forecast to hit the state overnight into Sunday, dumping 1 to 3 inches in north and west-central Missouri, with the heaviest snows near the Iowa-Missouri border. Only a dusting of snow is expected further south.

Although a wind chill advisory covering much of the southern half of the state was allowed to expire mid-morning Saturday, temperatures remain well below average today.

Microburst blamed for damage in Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A microburst is being blamed for storm damage in Cape Girardeau.

The storm struck Thursday night, making for a treacherous Halloween, but there were no reports of injuries.

The Southeast Missourian reports that winds of up to 95 miles per hour were reported on the city's south side.

The National Weather Service concluded the storm was the result of a microburst, though officials with the service say a weak tornado struck East Cape Girardeau, Ill. The twister had winds peaking at 80 mph.

Rain was heavy during the storm, and winds knocked over trees and downed power lines in Cape Girardeau. At one point, more than 2,000 customers of the utility Ameren Missouri were without power. Most electricity was restored by Friday afternoon.
