Lambert-St. Louis International Airport said it was operating at 70% capacity on Sunday, two days after a tornado slammed into the airport.

The tornado tore off a part of the roof over Concourse C and knocked out power, forcing the airport to close through late Saturday.

The C Concourse will be closed indefinitely, and the concourse’s tenants (American, AirTran, Frontier and Cape Air) have been moved to other locations. American and Cape Air have moved to Concourse D, and Frontier and AirTran are using gates in Concourse B.

Lambert said 11 airlines flew scheduled flights on Sunday. American will resume service from Lambert on Monday morning, said the airport, and Cape Air is slated to resume flights on Tuesday.

Airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said she believes airlines will reach 85% capacity on Monday.
