Maplewood crews responded quickly to a severe storm that blew through the St. Louis area around 1 p.m. Scanner reports indicated multiple downed trees and power wires, which caused some roads to be blocked off.
The 2000 block of Bellevue Avenue in Maplewood was blocked off because of a tree that landed in two yards.
Libby Edwards said her son Stu Lynch was outside when the tree fell down. He described it to her as just like in a movie, with a wall of wind, a big crack and a giant branch off of a sycamore tree between the two houses falling down through the electrical wires.
They called 911 and authorities taped off the area. The road is now open.
