ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A Pine Lawn business was severely damaged in Monday's storms. Crews spent the day cleaning up the damage. They collected long sheets of twisted metal littered over the parking lot. Strong gusting winds ripped them from a storage building on Natural Bridge and Darby. The storm knocked two walls out of the structure used to store equipment and supplies for Skate King next door.

Several vehicles covered with mounds of concrete blocks are damaged. This includes a 1969 white convertible Mustang and a 1968 black Buick Electra 225 limited.

Ron Smith is on a mission to help secure the building as quickly as possible. "The idea is to protect it from storms and any vagrants pilfering that might go on."

Right now, it's not clear whether the owner will rebuild.
