Cleanup in Joplin
Sunday’s tornado in Joplin, Mo., sent scores of volunteers and workers to clean up the mess left in the wake of the storm.
As of Monday evening, the death count in Joplin rose to 122 with more than 750 people injured in the city of 50,150 people in southwest Missouri. Those grim statistics have marked the Joplin tornado as one of the worst in U.S. history.
One of the people who helped clean up the mess is Buck Wright of Bethel Heights, Ark. Wright snapped some photos while in Joplin on Monday and has given First Arkansas News permission to post them. We send our thanks to Buck and invite you to marvel at the extent of damage left by a natural disaster which occurred during a spring full of devastating storms.
