Several tornados touched down in Missouri yesterday. From early morning till late at night, there would be no break. The shots of the homes that were leveled are about 12 miles to the s/e from us. I counted at least 9 homes on this gravel rd that had been leveled.The rain and hail blowing sideways is in my yard, we were fortunate and only got the hail core. I traveled about 3 miles of debri field this morning. My prayers go out to those that suffered in this great tradgedy.

This barn had its roof ripped right off and a portion of it's walls.



The rest are trees that were uprooted (large trees) and the debri field, this debri field I seen for about 3 miles. Pastures and tree lines littered with fiberglass and protions of folks homes.

Thanks for the comments and prayers, sure makes you feel powerless doesnt it. Im sure that the cleanup and rebuilding will go on for weeks and maybe even months, this was just a small portion of the devastation statewide and to the two neighboring states, Ks. and Ill. I have learned from the media that cleanup and rebuilding efforts are being volunteered by alot of local contractors and builders.

Silver;

After seeing these photos I can only say that my prayers go out to your town and surrounding areas as well.

I am so glad you all are O.K.
