storms


Emergency workers wait for a medical team after finding a body in a tornado ravaged car in Joplin, Mo., in the early hours of Monday, May 22. A large tornado moved through much of the city Sunday, damaging a hospital and hundreds of homes and businesses.
Today: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 7am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 78. South southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.

Tonight: Showers and thunderstorms likely. Cloudy, with a low around 63. South southeast wind between 5 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between three quarters and one inch possible.

We didn't get blown away yesterday evening but today is another day. Seems like we are hearing about of a lot of storms this spring.

Most of my son-in-law's relatives are in Carthage and Joplin. He's heard from most of his relatives and they're OK, but some have lost their homes.

We had some wild storms here in Illinois last night. The weather is wicked this year. Balisha

Erin's father in law lives at Joplin. They lost their home.

Rapture?
