ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Lambert airport has met the guidlines set by the National Weather Service to be deemed, StormReady.  This means the airport has adequate emergency operations planning and severe weather procedures. The National Weather Service evaluates airports across the country for weather forecast systems, public communication procedures and the facility signage for severe weather shelters.

Lambert Airport in St Louis volunteered for the designation after being hit by the “Good Friday Tornado” in April 2011.  The tornado ripped up much of Concource C and caused $25,000,000 in damage.   Other airports that meet these guidelines are Indianapolis, San Francisco and Detroit.
