When our tornado sirens went off last night, we headed to our (very messy) basement. We were there about 15 minutes, and other than some rain the storm passed us by without causing any problems in our area.
Other areas of the state were not so fortunate. Joplin Missouri was directly hit by a tornado last night, about the same time we were sitting in our basement. Some news sources are reporting at least 89 dead and people calling for help under the wreckage as crews search for survivors this morning.
I was looking for a picture to post, but then decided that it will be all over the news, and I really don’t need to share scary video or pictures of destruction. Let’s just keep Joplin in our prayers, as well as all the others who have been affected by devastating weather this spring.
