Severe weather expected tonight into Thursday

Posted: 2013/04/17 in accident, Weather

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for portions of the corridor until 22:00 tonight but favorable conditions for severe weather will last into Thursday.  Please take the weather forecasts seriously, as this type of severe weather has been known to topple tractor-trailers and overturn vehicles in the past, and the storms that hit Hazelwood on April 10 just missed the corridor by a matter of a few miles.

The yesterday morning commute did not go smoothly, as a tractor-trailer accident westbound at Route 367  just after 07:00 caused peak hour traffic to back up into Illinois.  Rain may had played a role in that incident which blocked 2 of the 3 mainline lanes and took nearly 2 hours for traffic to return to normal.
