It's not often St. Louis sees nearly a foot of snow in a 24-hour period, but it has happened a handful of times since records have been kept. The National Weather Service reported 10.8 inches Sunday at Lambert Airport.

As much of Missouri begins to dig out of snow coverage that descended over the state over the weekend, Ameren Missouri says about 1400 people are without power as the utility works to restore power.

The utility says the hardest hit areas are in Franklin County, and Jefferson County, with the others spread throughout eastern and southeast Missouri.

The outages come as the state is under a wind chill warning through noon today, with nearly the entire state reporting temperatures below zero early this morning.
