Does anyone know if we have any Joplin, MO area members and if they're safe??

For those that haven't seen the news there was a tornado right through Joplin this evening: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-naw-joplin-eyewitness-20110522,0,4304778.story


I have a lot of family in that area (and my mom's there right now taking care of my grandma!) and I'm feeling immensely BLESSED that so far I think everyone's safe.

Recent reports are that about 75% of the town (pop approx 48,000) is gone including the hospital, high school, lots of housing and businesses, and much more. Also 24 dead so far. :'(

I don't know. We do have some Missouri members, not sure if any are from Joplin. The whole town is in our prayers!
