Joplin tornado

By |  May 22, 2011

I’m down here in southern Missouri visiting my wife’s family… we’re 40 miles east of Joplin, Mo.

Here in Monett, the tornado sirens went off for almost 30 minutes. I think that’s the longest I’ve ever heard them, and that’s coming from a guy who grew up in Wichita.

I took some photos, but didn’t bring my card reader. I’ll download and post them later this week. We didn’t see any tornadoes here, thankfully, just a lot of ominous clouds.

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in Joplin.
