Pieces of broken glass littered passenger waiting areas Saturday at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport's Concourse C following a devastating storm.
Numerous workers could be seen rebuilding during a media tour of the facility.
During the tour, Mayor Francis Slay told St. Louis Patch he doesn't know the number of St. Louis City employees who had been dispatched to help in storm-ravaged parts of the county. But he said that the two governments are working together and that he has personally reached out to St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley.
The airport likely sustained millions of dollars in damage as a result of the storm, said Rich Bradley, president of the Board of Public Service of St. Louis City, during a news conference.
Airlines that use Concourse C are expected to be repositioned elsewhere so that flights can resume shortly. Officials are hopeful the airport will be at 70 percent operating capacity throughout Sunday and at 100 percent capacity by early next week, though repairs on Concourse C will continue beyond that.
