I just logged onto to KMOV CBS 4 and indeed they did confirm a portion of the roof off at Lambert that landed on I-70. Sounds like they had quite a storm move through the STL area

It got dark at ORD today but it seemed all we had was drizzle so far. Glad it didnt get to bad during the Evening rush/European Departures!

It was the main Terminal, now operating @ 1/3 capacity. WN's Terminal is operating @ full capacity and undamaged.
Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

Live video stream from KSDK in St. Louis

60 foot section of roof from a temporary building near the East Terminal. Power is out in the Main Terminal. 350,000 people without power and a possible tornado touchdown near Jefferson Barracks and 270.

We are hearing power is still out, no backup, if it continues to morning it will present a problem for check in.
Warm winds blowing, heating blue skies, and a road that goes forever, I'm going to Texas!

Yes that photo is of the main terminal that is the architectural icon of the airport. The southwest terminal is the "East terminal" that was opened about a decade ago.

How are things going there this morning?

I just spent a while Googling to try to find out when exactly the East terminal was opened. My earliest recollection of it was when my cousin was about 3 and I was 17, making it about 1993.

The power was restored at the airport about 3a.m. It looks like the airport is running as normal. I haven't heard anything about the damage causing any problems. I just feel really bad for all the people in the St. Louis area. It is going to be one of the hottest days of the year and there are still about 400,000 people with out power. You can go to Ksdk.com, they have pictures of the damage at the airport and around the area.

I have a Jet America Airlines timetable dated December 15, 1986 that reads:

Effective February 1, 1987, Jet America will move to the more convenient East Terminal located at the end of Concourse D.

So....is the East Terminal at least that old?

The East Terminal has been around for 21 years. Ever since the D Concouse open. It wasn't anything to wirte home about. It was small, and that is where Southwest check in counters were. (Plus another INS customs hall)
Though it looked like the end of D councourse, with a parking lot.

The current east terminal building was open in late 1997. I think construction started in 1995.

If my recollection is correct, the East Terminal opened in two phases. The original East terminal is now the charter / IAB gates. The building that SWA is now in is the 'new' east terminal. I believe this building opened in 1995 / 1996.

Correction some, the original east terminal, are E-29, E-31 and E-33.

The new east terminal which houses Southwest Airlines, E-2-E25 was completed and service started may 5th, 1998.

Post-Dispatch tonight says it was part of the unused 'D' concourse that lost the roof, not the 'E' WN terminal.

I was in STL Wednesday night during all that, staying about 10 miles from STL itself. Heck yeah the weather was horrible but not that bad where I was, was sitting on a sun porch taking in the wind and mist since there was no power. The power loss has been updated to 500,000.
Good Luck to all Skyway Pilots! It's been great working with you!
