    Default Everybody say a prayer.

    We need to have prayers and good thoughts for one of our forum members that lives in Joplin Missouri USA [ ez1969 " Eric " ] and the rest of the folks there.
    About half of the city of 40,000 has been flattened by a tornado at about 5:00 pm central time Sunday May 22. an EF4 rated tornado. It ripped the bark off the trees that weren't torn off at the stumps and blown away. The largest hospital in the tris-state area was hit and the top floor is gone . People sucked out the shattered windows to who knows where. Dead for sure.
    There are 24 confirmed deaths as of 10:30 pm and thorough searches have not began yet as darkness has fallen. There most surely will be dozens more. Severe injuries are in the hundreds at this moment.

    Thanks SteveR. I came here to start a thread about this.
    My best wishes to Eric and family and all the people in Joplin as well as the ones that got hit hard up North.
    When the hospital gets put out of commission and you have so many injured you gotta know it's bad.

    No not trying at this time. Land lines are not good to use, what is left is needed for local rescue and emergency communication and do not have a cell phone number for Eric.
    My first inclination is to go to one of the triage centers and volunteer to help but it would just add to the confusion. There is more hard weather on the way today and tommorrow.
    The only thing to do is wait. I hate this kind of $hit.
