HAZELWOOD, Mo. - Several schools in the St. Louis area were closed Thursday because of damage from storms.

KMOX Radio reports that all Hazelwood schools were shut down after the storm that struck the community Wednesday night. Power outages also closed Cross Keys Middle School and Wedgewood Elementary in the neighboring Ferguson-Florissant School District.

And in west St. Louis County, high winds took off portions of the roof at Shenandoah Elementary School in the Parkway School District, forcing it to close.

There is no word yet on when the schools will reopen.
