North St. Louis Old North Severe Weather

Storm Damage in Old North

by Michael R. Allen

We again have electricity, so I will share two images of storm damage in Old North St. Louis.

Here is the house at 1219 Clinton Street in the south end of the neighborhood. While it was already damaged and the roof had collapsed at the start of this year, its east wall was relatively intact until Wednesday.

Here is a close-up of the damage to the roof of the William H. Niedringhaus Home on Sullivan Avenue (our house).

There’s a photo of the damaged Someone Cares Mission building on Benton Street in the What’s New in Old North blog.
