(KMOV.com) -- St. Louis parks crews on Monday morning were out and about picking up most of the damage left in the wake of severe weather that blew through the area on Sunday.

Officials said no major injuries were reported and only a small number of people suffered minor injuries.

In downtown St. Louis, the high winds toppled street lights, lamp posts and an empty building.  A tractor-trailer hauling Anheuser-Busch beer overturned on a Mississippi River bridge connecting the city to the Metro East suburbs of Illinois.

City officials say about 175 city-owned trees were downed or damaged.

 

At the peak of the storm, 7,900 city residents were without power.
