April 15th, 2019 in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — More than 10,000 Missouri residents remained without power Sunday afternoon after a strong storm swept through the area overnight and damaged a historic cathedral in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported the storm generated wind gusts up to 60 mph early Sunday morning that caused the damage. Ameren said approximately 13,000 utility customers lacked power around 3 p.m. Sunday.

The wind blew off part of the roof of a Roman Catholic Cathedral in downtown. St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson said the church will be repaired.

The church building dates back to 1831.
