Several Los Angeles-bound flights out of tornado-ravaged Lambert-St. Louis Airport were canceled on Saturday.

The mayor of St. Louis said the city's airport is closed indefinitely after an apparent tornado tore through a section of the airport.

The storm lifted the roof off a concourse, injuring several people who ran for shelter as plate glass shattered around them. Crews are cleaning up the debris Saturday.
