An unmarked police car blocks off drivers from traveling any further on Cypress Road and prevents any access to Interstate 70, which was closed down Friday after an unconfirmed tornado landed in St. Louis. The apparent tornado left Lambert-St. Louis International Airport damaged and "indefinitely" closed to all flights.
