ST. LOUIS (AP) - Strong thunderstorms make for a slow rush hour in St. Louis, down trees in mid-Missouri and leave thousands of Missourians without power.

Storms with high winds and heavy rains arrived Wednesday morning, slowing the commute for thousands of people in metro St. Louis. There were reports of wind damage in Jefferson and Franklin counties, near St. Louis, but no immediate reports of injuries. The utility company Ameren reported nearly 13,000 outages as of Wednesday morning, many of them near Union in Franklin County.

Winds of up to 75 mph were reported in Columbia, with heavy rain and dime-sized hail.
