Joplin, Missouri

There is a ton of pictures, sorry if it took a long time to load.  I'm trying to get pictures to my 'non-facebook' family.  W:hen you get to the bottom of this post, click older posts to get to the other half of pictures in the prior post.

One of the parks, and the photo below this one is literally right across the street.

The shower curtain went under/thru the tub enclosure.

The master bedroom was destroyed, but there is still a neat pile of clothes that are folded in the closet.

The front living room. The mattress is from the master bedroom.

The back of the apartment complex

The stairs up to the second story.  A motorcycle is jammed under the stairs.

Looking from the first floor across the parking lot.

This was a 2 story apartment complex.

The complex we went to is on the right, the one on the left used to look the exact same.

They were still doing searches at the apartment to the right of the complex

And the ditch between the rail road tracks and the apartments.

One of the grocery store.


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone there!!

  2. Tornados are my worst fear as far as natural disasters go and these pictures are exactly why I fear them so much. I've been watching on the news and I just can't believe what I'm seeing. It breaks my heart. I have a lot of family in MO but thankfully they are 2 and 3 hours from Joplin. I pray that they don't get hit again today.

  3. Oh my goodness. That is just horrible. I'm so glad you have been able to go and help some.

    Keeping them in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. This is insane and so incredibly sad, Jenn. I am so glad you could go and help your friends. Thank God they are all right. Seeing the images makes the destruction really hit home.
