More information on the Tornado:
The tornado hit winds in excess of 198 mph so they’ve classed it as an EF4.
14,000 people still remain without electricity as of last night.
The death toll has raised to 116 as of this morning.
I think I’ve heard 17 people have been rescued alive in the rubble.
They are having blood drives, they especially need O-neg.
I have no idea what my blood type is but I’m planning on getting over my fear of needles and donating.
When we got home on Sunday after the tornado had ripped through Joplin, our yard was covered in debris. Some of it is unreal. My friend Aerielle and her kids came to our house so we could all check facebook for photos because at that time there were still no photos on the tv. So between her house and ours (about 1 mile) there was styrofoam all over the road, 2×6’s with nails in the middle of the road, tree limbs down, tin in the ditch. All the debris being as far away as what we were was just unreal.
So here’s some of what we found in our yard debris wise.
This was the TV just about the time Joplin got hit.
Please remember to keep the victims as well as the worker’s in your thoughts and prayers. 2 of my co-workers are volunteering their time. They said pictures we see aren’t even doing it justice. He said they are having to climb over things to get into the houses and rubble that they are digging through. I can only imagine. The weather is predicting more Tornadic cells coming through our area tonight along with more rain tomorrow. Please keep all of these people in your prayers!
