Dam, that is sad. My brother was up all night helping, and he is still helping at the High School in Webb City, and they have events like Project Graduation planned this week. I don't know how that is going to work out. I'm sure Joplin won't be having the graduation as scheduled, their school is wiped out. Webb City can't go ahead as scheduled, their school is a shelter now for the homeless.

It is going to be many months before there is any semblance of normality, and probably decades before things are remotely "normal."

Keep up the good fight, we are praying for your coworkers and nurses. Hopefully they are just busy busy busy helping the wounded.

These are the reports of the destruction of the town so far!



Between 25 to 30% of Joplin, Missouri suffered major or significant damage from the tornado, Mitch Randles from the Joplin Fire Department said during a news conference.


news.blogs.cnn.com...


You were correct on the number of houses they are saying about 2000 wow....



Nixon said there are also 2,000 buildings with "very significant damage."

My friend's mother was inside Wal-Mart when the tornado hit. We just received news that she was dug out alive but his 10 year old sister is still missing. I don't know if she was with her mom in Wal-Mart but thus far, no one has seen or heard from her... This is all just so surreal.

So sorry! We will pray for his daughter. Kids are resilient, hopefully she is in a shelter being taken care of.

What a path of destruction....reminds me of Greensburg, KS. My family was involved in the cleanup of that F5...you have really got to see the aftermath in person to really get a grip on what has occurred after an F4 or F5 has come through. My prayers are with all affected this season.

My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all affected.

Thank you for this!!!

I started listening and have cried a couple of times. It is so mixed with people looking for love ones, the station giving out information on how to get help and those calling in offering help. So amazing.

To everyone effected, my thoughts are with you.

I went to sleep last night, as the weather here calmed. Got up at 8am, and just to see out of --skeptical-- curiosity what the big commercial radio powerhouses out of Chicago had to say if anything.

I found politics, local stuff, giggling, irrelevent news and lots and lots and lots of commercials of course. Just now at 1100am WBBMam780 "All News" radio began with a jewelry heist in downtown Chicago. And of course, NPR is somewhere else far away in distance and time.
But if you didn't know about these links in this thread here on ATS, you could not tell anything happened or that there is such a thing as Joplin Missouri.

I watched some video on the BBC website and this is truly heartbreaking for all affected.

My thoughts are with you all.

I'll bet ya anything, I'd find --more-- news about Joplin on Al Jazeera, than I would these (above named) radio stations.
I went to Jasper County Law Enforcement Agencies Live Scanner Audio Feed at "radio reference" at it says it's down. Drat.

It is extremely heartbreaking what these people are going through. One of the DJs even lost everything himself. House, vehicles, clothes... so one of the listeners sent him a pair of socks to the station.


One family knowing one of their members were dead... apparently they found them.... but now need to know where the body was taken.

God bless and be with these fellow human beings and their loved ones (including pets). I wish them strength and assistance.

It's been all over the weather channel. CNN was live all the way last night covering it, and it's the top story on CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and the networks this morning.

Just because Chicago doesn't care, doesn't mean the rest of the country doesn't.

Alex Jones' InfoWars has a short newsclip re. Joplin, an AP story, that President Obama has been kept informed of the horror, and called the Govenor.

Actually a very large twister is similar to a hurricane. You hear debris- then the front side winds- the the core (quieter) then the backside winds -then debris then usually rain.

That's why the 'pause' in the noise.

A lot of radio stations are owned by Clearchannel and one or two other mega media outlets. The 'dj's that are on them are not even local and they are not allowed by the corporations to deviate from pre-programming. They are advertiser oriented only and to hell with whatever local population is in the area.

Boycott every Clearchannel or non-local radio outlet. I have for years.

Yeah, I know that about those Corporates. See everyone, this is who the corporates are and what they are about. Their politically agendized and profits based policy of a focused adherence would stick, EVEN if an approching PlanetX Nibiru was causing the whole entire world to end. Thats the corporates. And lets not forget the inane giggling and commercials! Of course.

Does anyone know why the weather channel was already there? Did they know this could happen or something? Thanks

Saw a news reporter on the television this morning who had to stop reporting because he couldn't contain his own emotion. He reported that they heard people screaming from beneath mounds of debris, but had to abandon any rescue efforts as a 2nd storm cell was passing through. This is really a tragedy.
I've seen the power of these storms, and I hope everyone fighting through the next wave will pull through okay.
