“Our damage was primarily in Glazebrook Heights on Taylor and Robert Road, East Delmar, Lake Drive, Pearl and Stamper,” the mayor said.

Mayor McCormick said the storm damage consisted primarily of tree and limb damage.

“A tree fell on a car and on a house,” he said. “We had a lot of debris on the streets and the tree down on East Delmar put power out for part of Godfrey. The street crew did a great job, but we still have some yard debris and it would be hard to burn that after all the rain that went through. That is why I extended the yard waste burn ordinance.”
