St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - In just under 30 minutes, tornado sirens will sound across Missouri.

 

Don't worry, it's part of a state-wide tornado drill. The sirens will sound at 1:30.

 

The drill was postponed from earlier in the week after the weekend's winter weather.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A national environmental group is suing a St. Louis-based utility, claiming thousands of violations of federal clean air laws.
 
The Sierra Club filed a federal lawsuit against the Ameren Corporation Wednesday in St. Louis. The complaint seeks to compel Ameren to reduce pollution at three Missouri power plants and asks the court to levy financial penalties for past violations.
 
The lawsuit says Ameren's own testing shows nearly 10,000 violations since 2009 at the utility's Meramec power plant in St. Louis County, the Rush Island plant in Jefferson County, and the Labadie (LA-buh-dee) plant in Franklin County.
 
Ameren's vice president of environmental services, Mike Menne, says the suit has no merit. He says a federal court in Texas recently rejected a similar case filed by the Sierra Club.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri Department of Transportation worker has been honored for saving a woman from a burning home while he was plowing snow last month.
The state Highways and Transportation Commission says Micah Lasley was plowing in the central Missouri town of Calwood on Feb. 10 when he saw an elderly man standing in a front yard.
 
Lasley stopped and the man said his wife still was inside their burning home. Lasley went inside, carried the woman out and called 911.
The state commission presented Lasley its Meritorious Safety Award on Wednesday. Officials say they learned of the situation when the couple's niece reported Lasley's action to MoDOT.
