HERCULANEUM (KMOV.com) -

Downed power lines closed all lanes of Interstate 55 near Herculaneum Tuesday night.

The lines were down near Highway Z, forcing the roadway closed for more than an hour.

In addition, thousands of people in the St. Louis area were without power as storms moved through. 

Around 26,000 people were without power in Missouri and around 2,500 customers in Illinois did not have power due to the storm. 

The storms also forced the Cardinals vs. Padres game to be canceled. It will be played at 1:15 p.m. Wednesday.
