Really bad hit they had there. I’ve been listening to AgendaFreeTV for a bit but went to your KRCG link and am listening to a young gal who went through it. It must have been a very large tornado to do the damage she’s describing.
I’m close by. The worst missed us, just some heavy rain. Jeff got hit pretty hard. It sucks.
Glad you’re safe.
Thanks. We had a tornado roll through about 10:00. It was about three miles south of where we live though. The sirens were going off for a solid 20 minutes, but thankfully (I guess) it turned SE of us.
Prayers for Jefferson City. I’m seeing reports of catastrophic damage and mass casualties.
Just watching the KRC link... Ft. Leonard Wood nearby!
Hadn’t heard of AgendaFreeTV before, I’ll definitely be checking it out in the future.
Tornado now on the ground near Lebanon, Mo.
Here is a link with a number of photos of the catastrophe. Also Joplin reports 3 killed.
Wow, this tornado hit right on the 8-year anniversary of the Joplin tornado.
Maybe folks in Joplin should just remove May 22, from their calendars.
Holy cow! That’s a whomper!
These hitting at night are worse than daytime because you can’t see them unless lightning lights them up. Plus people are sleeping now and tornados are still firing up. I see 7 warnings in OK, MO, and IL at the moment. :-(
He used to be part of the team at Right Side Broadcasting, but wanted to start an all-news channel without taking sides. He’s done many all nighters, including the boys that were trapped in the cave, hurricanes and news from the Middle East. Won’t use a source unless it’s verified. Something that I really admire.
Also, I’m one of the mods on his Periscope channel. LOL!
Interesting that they were already evacuating folks in Jefferson City in anticipation of the river cresting on Friday resulting in substantial flooding.
