The strong line of thunderstorms that sped through the St. Louis area Thursday afternoon spawned a tornado in central Illinois, about 50 west of Springfield.
Emergency Services officials in Cass and Morgan Counties had reported the twister just before 3 p.m.
Morgan County Sheriff Randy Duvendack says the storm caused no damage.
Another line of storms is pushing through the St. Louis area as of 7:00 a.m. Monday. Severe storms that pushed through the St. Louis metro area early Monday morning brought strong winds and lightning. The storms caused scattered power outages that plunged thousands of residents into the dark.
As of 7:05 a.m., about 88-hundred people are without power on the Missouri side of the river with about half in St. Louis County and another 19-hundred in the Metro East-mainly in St. Clair County.
