Killer Tornado Hits Joplin Missouri

Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the killer tornado which hit Missouri yesterday. Many of our regulars have family and friends in those towns, including Sekan Blunt Delivery and Mel.  The number of injured has climbed to 1200 with the fear the death toll will exceed 120 with many believed still trapped under the rubble . The worst hit was Joplin where the tornado cut a path that was nearly six miles long & half a mile wide through the heart of the town destroying everything in its wake. The hospital took a direct hit and has been forced to close.

Psst For those who would like to help, please send donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, or call 1-800-REDCROSS.

  1. Hard to imagine what it would be like to have your city struck by one of these monsters. This year seems like it is going to be very bad indeed.

    Yes it’s very sad to lose a loved one but when they lose evrything eslse too. I can’t imagine starting all over again, it must be very hard.

  3. I spent the day there today, retrieving my grandkids and their clothes.
    Their house was just on the edge of the worst, about a half mile from the hospital.
    Unbelievable. It looks like a blast zone, telephone pole snapped like twigs.
    The daughter and her family were lucky. They have friends who did not survive.
    People wandering around looking for those missing…..sad stuff.
    Once we got to the city, it took another hour and a half to reach their house.

  4. Thanks for writing about this. I can’t keep thinking about all those affected. Still waiting to hear from my neighbor who lived above me. She didn’t get around well and that apartment is now gone. 😦
