...Microburst responsible for wind damage in St. Peters early this morning...
National Weather Service personnel have surveyed the damage that occurred in
the St. Peters area early this morning. It appears that this damage was the
result of a small-scale microburst.
Tree damage occurred in a fairly large area from just northeast of
Spencer library...to around Willott Road between Spencer Drive and
Spencer Creek. However, the highest winds appears to have occurred
from the City of St. Peters Maintenance facility on Boone
Hills Drive...southeast to near Spencer Creek north of Willott Road.
The greatest damage occurred in two locations. The first...and initial start
of the microburst...was at the maintenance facility...where the roof of
one of the maintenance sheds was blown west-northwest into a neighboring
residential area. The second area was on Wells Fargo Drive, where a
a large uprooted tree caused structural damage to a house.
Maximum wind speeds of this microburst were estimated to be in the
80 to 85 mph range.
