Incredible destruction. sad2.gif JR also informs me a bunch of Bible colleges and such are found in Joplin damned.gif

Quote:“Ozark Christian College is in north Joplin, where a lot of the ministries are located, and all are OK,” Knowles told The Christian Chronicle.

Restoration Movement churches have a sizable presence in the city of 50,000 people about 160 miles south of Kansas City. It’s the home of 16 instrumental Christian Churches and eight a cappella Churches of Christ, according to Knowles. Thirty parachurch ministries associated with the instrumental branch of the fellowship are located in Jopli

I read the tornado sirens went off 20 minutes before any tornado touchdown so I don't know why those people were in harms way sad2.gif A fierce start of the hurricane season
