This is frightening. When a tornado struck Lambert-St. Louis International Airport Friday night, a security camera caught some amazing footage as things went flying in one concourse.

Amazingly, there were no deaths reported from the twister, which along with the extensive damage at the airport also destroyed up to 100 homes. Officials credit "early warnings, good timing and common sense," The Associated Press says.

As for operations at the airport, officials say flight schedules are almost back to normal.
