Tornado hitting Joplin Missouri
Posted 01 July 2011 - 03:03 AM
The town i live next to was hit by an EF5 tornado that started out 3 blocks outside of town and walked slowly through town taking out an 8 - 10 block wide area all the way through town and through two suburbs on the other side. The death toll was around 160 and we went without power from May 22nd until yesterday.
Services have been restored to most of the town and my power is back on so there shouldn't be any more delays.
My house came through ok but both my vehicles were totaled due to wind damage but i picked up a sweet Eddie Baur edition Ford Explorer with 60k miles on it so things are close to back to normal for me at least.
My sympathy goes out to those not so lucky and may god be with them and their families.

considering the reason, no appologies are necessary. and i know you were out doing search and rescue on top of it. so god bless, and get some R&R.
Glad to hear you're ok and helping others. I know if that happened here I would be out there doing the same thing since I know most everyone around this area.
