CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – Chesterfield residents continue cleaning up after powerful storms caused significant damage to the area.
Severe storms rolled across the St. Louis region Saturday evening with intense winds causing uprooted trees and downed limbs and power lines.
In Chesterfield, near Wild Horse and Wilson, a tree fell across a road on to a car with someone in inside of it. Luckily, the person inside the car told FOX 2 they were not injured and were able to get out of their car to safety. Neighbors worked together to clear the tree from the car and roadway.
Another very large tree down the street was also uprooted, barely missing a house.
