On Sunday May 22nd, the town of Joplin, Missouri was devastated by an F5 tornado, the highest rating given to tornados.
The death toll is at 122 victims and there are over 700 with injuries. There are still over 1,500 people unaccounted for.
Times like these, we feel helpless. We don’t know what to do. We wish we could be there to help. Our hearts go out to the victims of the Joplin, Missouri tornado.
We are going to do what we do best: Blog and use Social Media.
