ST. LOUIS - Crews worked on Saturday to get the international airport in St. Louis back up and running after it was raked by a tornado that also battered homes and cars and knocked out power in the Midwestern US city.

Authorities closed Lambert-St. Louis International Airport after the tornado tore through the area on Friday night, damaging the terminal and at least one plane. Airlines affected by the shutdown included Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and AMR Corp's American Airlines.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and released state funds to help in the clean-up.
