tmawoods I love the Spirit Tree. It reminds me of all the growth and strength of one community. Having been gone for three of the last four years, I've primarily been able to watch Joplin rebuild from the outside. It's been amazing to watch the community come together strong, not only in the first year, but in recent years as well. #hopeforjoplin #joplintornado #fouryears #joplin 1mon

derrickforsythe Hard to believe it's been four years ago today since the tornado struck Joplin and sent us into action. I will never forget sitting at the fire station that night with Scott Weir, listening to Joplin FD calls of distress. We grew so much from that experience and gained some amazing friends. It's fascinating how the tragedies in life can bring so much good over the long term. There are a lot of amazing people out there, like "Huge Guy," "Old Guy," and the "Chicks from Kirksville." And can't forget Christian Wenzel putting on the mascot head and giving out free hugs. #goodtimes #godswork #joplintornado 1mon

satcomwitty 4 years ago today an EF-5 tornado ravaged to town of Joplin Missouri. Within an hour of the tornado tearing through town, I was dispatched to Joplin to cover the story for CBS news. The sights, sounds, and smells I experienced in the hours and days that followed are something I will carry with me the rest of my life. In 2012, on the 1 year anniversary of the tornado, I was asked by my co-workers to write a blog post about my experiences – it can be read here: http://www.kaufmanbroadcast.com/the-joplin-tornado-from-my-perspective
Last June I had the opportunity to return to the Joplin area and revisit some of the areas where I was setup back in 2011. The damaged homes are gone, the cars that littered the streets and parking lots have been cleaned up, but the scars still remain. The trees that once provided ample shade have been reduced to stumps. The obliterated hospital that that stood in the background of most TV network reports is now just an open field. A memorial fountain was erected in the park across the street from where the hospital once stood. On a plaque are the names of the 162 people that lost their lives that day. Mother nature’s fury is a powerful force. #Joplin #joplintornado #nature #tornado #memories

  •   ozarksblood As we pause to remember, we're so thankful for our many donors who came forward immediately that day to make sure that we, as the sole supplier to our local hospitals, had everything we needed to keep the hospitals going. <3 1mon
