I think it was a semi embedded supercell for a bit..had a huge hail spike right before it dropped

Yeah, the distinction between QLCS tornadoes and "embedded supercells" is a bit vague sometimes.  Rare that you see a spin up that strong embedded within the middle of a squall line though.

Seriously doubt it.  No evidence of this in radar.

KSDK St. Louis has good live coverage with concern on spin ups from circulations as the line passes east.

I'm in Virginia.  I'm on the phone with my mom in Canada who is from St. Louis, and we're both watching KSDK online.

I am thankful for science and modern technology, particularly in cases of severe weather.

No reports of significant structural damage from the earlier surprise violent tornado signature in far southwest metro St. Louis. It’s a predominantly rural area where the terrain goes from highly rolling, down a steep incline, and then onto the Missouri River floodplain, and then back up the other side.

 

If this was displaced just about 11 miles farther east, we’d likely have seen a much different scenario going through much more populated suburban cities, such as Wildwood & Chesterfield.
