The tornado that blew through Lambert Airport, Maryland Heights, Ferguson and surrounding areas is too much like New Year's Eve for Sunset Hills and Crestwood.
Tornado-like winds roared through the St. Louis area Friday evening, leaving a trail of damage reminiscent of the Sunset Hills destruction from a New Year's Eve tornado. Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency at about 12:45 a.m. Saturday after Lambert International Airport in St. Louis closed indefinitely from damage suffered in the storm. Maryland Heights, Ferguson and Bridgeton—in addition to the airport—apparently took the brunt of the damage Friday evening, according to The Weather Channel. Power was out after the high winds struck. Huge windows shattered at the airport, parked cars were roughed up, a shuttle bus blown about teetered on the edge of the top floor of a parking garage. Highways 270 and 70 were littered with debris …

Baebler, 45, was initially appointed by Mayor Bill Nolan to fill out his term on the board when he moved from alderman to mayor last year. Baebler continues to have Nolan's support.

I can tell you with confidence she has earned her election," Nolan said about Baebler, in an endorsement statement. Baebler's apparent common sense and heartfelt approach to the plight of tornado victims has …

Ward 1 Alderwoman Dee Baebler examines the essence of what tornado survivors shared with her.
Ward 1 took the brunt of the New Year's Eve tornado.
SUNSET HILLS-- In working with tornado survivors during the several weeks after the New Year's Eve tornado struck, what I learned foremost is the value of family and the true meaning of home. The afternoon and evening of the event had a very powerful impact on all of us but especially on the neighbors, family members and friends gathered at the Sunset Hills Community Center. They were happy to have survived with their families intact. The survivors were so brave and positive. They were thankful, kind and gracious. Yet who could imagine what they had just seen or the fear they had just faced? I have never seen such courage in my lifetime. Also, I don't believe I've ever cried so much in such a short period of time. Hearing stories of …
