On Dec. 10, 2021, an outbreak of tornadoes swept across a swathe of the United States, leaving a trail of destruction and resulting in at least 93 confirmed deaths.

Seven of those victims were in the St. Louis area, as tornadoes blew away homes in Defiance, Missouri, and collapsed an Amazon warehouse in Edwardsville, Illinois.

On the one-year anniversary, 5 On Your Side takes a look back at the timeline of that day, compiled from a year of our reporting, official reports and survivors' first-hand accounts. 

We also remember the victims and take a look at what has changed in the year since.
