Residents in South County reported a variety of snapping and popping noises in their neighborhood last night which turned out to be a small fire at the Ameren Meramec power plant.  Authorities are trying to determine the cause. No one was hurt and electrical service was not disrupted. An Ameren official says some of the noise was the sound of safety valves on steam lines lifting due to the fire, which was quickly extinguished.

   The vacancies on the St. Louis County Police Board will remain unfilled for the time being.  The County Council Tuesday night postponed confirmation votes for two of County Executive Charlie Dooley's nominees.  

   The council had called a special meeting to consider the nominees to replace Gregory Sansone and Floyde Warman, but instead introduced legislation requiring police board members to undergo background checks and then adjourned without a confirmation vote.

   Dooley had tapped Republican Dave Spence and Democrat Freddy Clark to fill two seats on the five-member board.

   Earlier in the day, police board member Ray Wagoner announced that he too is stepping down. Wagoner cited personal and business obligations.  The county executive has not yet named a successor for Wagoner.

   CONWAY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon is asking the federal government to issue a major disaster declaration for 22 southern Missouri counties hit hard by this month's floods.

   Nixon said Tuesday the costs of emergency response and repairs will be high.

   The floods that resulted from nearly two weeks of heavy rain caused widespread damage across the southern tier and left at least three people dead.

   Nixon announced his request in Conway, where the waste water treatment system was heavily damaged.

   The governor is asking the federal government to clear the way for individual and public assistance in 14 counties, public assistance in four counties and individual assistance in four others.

   Individual assistance allows households to seek federal aid for uninsured losses. Public assistance allows local governments to seek help with response and recovery expenses.

   Dozens of new laws take affect in Missouri today.  Among them is the new carry conceal permit law, which shifts the process of issuing permits to county sheriff's departments and away from the state Department of Revenue.

   Other new laws on the books today will hike the fines for passing or speeding in emergency zones on highways, allow drivers to show proof of insurance using their smartphones and tablets, and let cities decide if they want to allow ATVs on their streets.

   There's a new law encouraging Missouri schools to teach first-graders the National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program. 

   And another that requires scrap metal dealers to keep records of transactions involving catalytic converters.
