adair county tornadoes

Posted: 05/14/2009 in life, pictures

this happened last night before 6pm. they announced this morning there are at least 3 casualties to these 4 tornadoes which touched down in adair county. 

this is our neighboring county (where i do our grocery shopping and some of you may know truman state university which is also in kirksville). 

there was one tornado that was said to touch down in greentop on hwy k but i haven’t seen any pictures or know exactly where. i think that would be about 10-15 min from here. 

last night they said the hospital was overwhelmed and they had transported over 27 people to the hospital by 6:30pm. also at 6:30pm they called in rescue help from all neighboring counties to ask for help from all firefighters to rescue the people that were trapped in their homes… so sad!

    while I was growing up there were a couple tornadoes that hit in Omaha and then one right b/4 Randy and Amber’s wedding in CB, 1988…do you remember? We just missed it driving over there! Makes you wonder what it is about May, June and July and tornadoes!!!

    I’m glad everything’s okay! I didn’t think you lived in Kirksville but I remembered you talking about that town a lot so I had to get on facebook last night to make sure it wasn’t your town!! Tornadoes are bad!

    It’s always sad to see someone lose their home, and even worse when multiple families do. 😦 We have a friend of the family, his son and grandson(both grown) each lost their homes in kirksville. I just can’t imagine!

    Those houses would have been better served had they been ICF. Such an amazing display of force. Wow, this is the first I have seen pictures. Sad to see their loss.
