In addition to all the storm damage in Hazelwood,  from what weather officials are calling a tornado, there are parts of Florissant that sustained significant damage also.

Trees  and branches are down  around St. Ferdinand Park,  shopping center signs tilted and damaged at Florissant Meadows Shopping Center (see photo) , utility wires down and power out, especially along  N. Lindbergh, between Patterson and New Halls Ferry where police officers (see photo) were handing traffic on  Thursday morning.

Much of the damage in Hazelwood was near Howdershell and Lynn Haven and along Patterson Road. Mayor Matt Robinson said he saw at least 20 trees down.  The Missouri Highway Patrol came into Hazelwood Wednesday morning to assist Hazelwood Police. Access into the storm damage area was limited on Wednesday.
