Jan. 2, 2006 - 9:10 a.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Some eastern Missouri residents will be
checking their homes and cars for hail damage this morning.

Storms overnight brought rain, high winds and, in some cases,
hail to parts of eastern Missouri. Tornado warnings were issued,
but none touched down.

Still, strong winds tore the roof off a home in Reynolds in
southern Missouri. No injuries were reported.

In the St. Louis area, about 35-hundred Ameren-U-E customers
were without power this morning, many of them in the Olivete area.
