ST. LOUIS — People in many parts of Missouri are cleaning up after strong thunderstorms and even a few tornadoes ripped through the state.

No injuries were reported from the storms on Tuesday. Another round of severe weather is predicted for later this week.

Three tornadoes reportedly touched down in Pike County in northeast Missouri, downing power lines and damaging roofs. High winds in southeast Missouri, possibly from a tornado, destroyed barns and knocked down trees.

The wind caused significant damage to the roof at Notre Dame High School in Cape Girardeau. Rain got into the building, damaging the cafeteria, kitchen, music room and dance room.

The storm brought large hail to the St. Louis area. Heavy rain and hail pelted people at the St. Louis Cardinals game that was eventually postponed.
