Tornado Hits STL Area Arena

The violent weather that has rocked the midwest this past couple of weeks has damaged another hockey arena. This time it was the Family Arena in St. Charles near St. Louis, MO. The arena was in the path of a tornado which at times reached speeds that classified it an EF3. Reports say that the arena had roof damage and damage to an exterior wall. While I have yet to see any photos or evidence of roof damage, the hole in the wall is very real and very bad. The hole opens directly over the main concourse which flooded as a result. A local high school graduation was scheduled to take place on Saturday but those plans were cancelled due to the damage.

The Family Arena will be the home of St. Charles' new Central Hockey League team, the Chill. They begin playing this fall.
