This is far worse than the stockton tornado. my girlfriend and i were living in stockton when it was wiped out, but i had a premonition several day's earlier so i packed her and the kids up and went and hid in the family bunker on the farm 20 miles east. my premonitions never lie and we were lucky because where the tornado passed through the park we would have been obliterated

paranoia wont destroy ya

They are about to shut down for the night and to restart at sunrise


It will be impossible to search at night but I hope they can
continue to help people that are stranded and in need
of medical care.

They keep reporting that they have dead people and need the mobile morgues to pick them up. The longer they wait the chances of survival go down. If I had direct family there I would have to sneek in and search, but with tornadoes like this they could be many miles away. I dont know, this just has heart broken and thinking what can i do?

That stockton tornado was scary though! As a kid, we used to camp in the very spot that tornado hit. I don't know how many storms I have rode out in a tent on Stockton Lake, or Osage Beach. To think any one of them could have been fatal is scary to look back on!

The Scanner just said 24th and Duquesne. I have some very good friends that live on 24th street just 1 block west of Duquesne. Nobody has been able to contact them yet, but we were under the impression the damage was light there? I am going to make some more calls.

I clearly remember that one. I have sold stuff at the Walnut festival after that to support the town, but it was still obvious that it had happened. Glad to know that you listened to your intuition.

It is a very small and intimate community. Joplin only has about 40,000 residents. If a hundred people die, it will have impacted each and every person in the community!

I just found out my ex-wife's employer is wiped out. My sister-in-laws employer was right in the direct path, so it might be gone.

I have a feeling there won't be a single soul in that community that isn't heavily impacted by this.

We live near Lake Pom de Terre and yet have camped on Stockton several times. We are a close nit State for sure, and what happens to one community affects us all. Lets hope we can come together to help all the people who will be affected including the less know tragedies we have yet to hear about.

Here is a long video (19 minutes) where the reporter we've been seeing finally gets his voice. If you have been watching the Weather Channel, you may have already seen most of this?.... but.... for the rest of us....

Great video because a little dog is even rescued alive as he is pulled out of a building!

Here's a link to a really good website that's keeping it updated with all info as it's coming in from Joplin - ie: link to the Redcross website for people trying to locate loved ones, links to maps showing where emergency shelters and make-shift medical facilities are, etc.

Here is an article on Ozarksfirst.com regarding how to volunteer to help (an 800 number), how to volunteer as a medical professional, and information on a facebook page where people can locate missing loved ones.

actually i had the premonition a year earlier when her and i were in the park. i clearly seen the track of the storm and all the large beautiful trees blown down, and i was telling what i was seeing, and she said i was nuts


the next year came around and i started feeling uneasy and told her it was going to happen this weekend and forced her to pack up the kids and leave to go to the farm.

one of the people who died in the tornado had been telling people his entire life that the day he died he would take the town with him....old man Castle died in his wheelchair before his wife could get to him, he was right, just as i was, but i had a plan to survive

With the sounds of the emergency vehicles it would be impossible to hear anyone crying out for help. Looks like they have just dispatched a team out to a location to help with victims. I wish I had that code link so we could understand what it is they are saying in private.

I don't know what I can say to help. We went through this down here just a few weeks ago. The salvation army was one place that needed help they took donations of things people would need after the tornadoes. People forget these people loose everything including their clothes. One place down here had a shoe drive so they could hand out shoes to people. Also undergarments, diapers and personal products were on the list that was needed to hand out to people. Your local ema would know where volunteers can go.

Our local churches also served meals to families. You might check out a local church around the area and see if they are helping in anyway. Down here the southern baptist mens association help people clean up after the storms also.

These storms move things father than you can imagine. Paperwork from Tuscaloosa was found all the way in N.C. I live 2 hours from huntsville and a man from huntsville his body was found down here. I know down here they figure they will never find a lot of the missing people.

My prayers are with you all up there.
