ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Saturday marks a year since an EF3 tornado went through Edwardsville.

The fire chief told News 4 the tragedy exposed many flaws, including the need for new equipment for first responders.

The city’s mayor says he hasn’t heard back from Amazon regarding recommendations and changes moving forward.

Families of the victims are also suing the company
