Video: Tornado rips through St. Louis airport

By EMS1 Staff

ST. LOUIS — Surveillance video shows visitors and employees frantically running for cover as a tornado strikes an airport in St. Louis on Friday.

As the twister ripped through a concourse, TSA agents ducked into a bathroom just moments before high winds violently blew past and blasted debris through the hallway.

The massive tornado tore a path of destruction 22 miles long, destroying nearly 100 homes and prompting locals to declare the lack of fatalities or serious injuries a miracle.

Five people suffered minor injuries.
