Tornadoes in St. Louis County; Lightning strikes the Gateway Arch [photos]

That is a marvelous photo, but there is nothing good about the situation in and around the St. Louis County, Missouri, area tonight. We are seeing reports of significant damage resulting from tornadoes:

Some residents took to Twitter to document the devastation:

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has declared a State of Emergency.

If you pray, include St. Louis residents in your prayers tonight.

    WOW!!! I sincerely hope everyone is ok. With that being said, this has never….ever happened before, so it must be man-made global warming.


    My sisters family lives a few blocks from lynn haven Lane. Could not get a hold of her. Been trying all night.
