Thoughts in Orrick

The National Weather Service said the tornado was part of a super cell storm that formed over the Kansas City metropolitan area earlier Saturday and continued eastward, spawning at least one more tornado that also struck near the town of Marshall.

Thoughts and prayers are with the good folks of Orrick, MO, not far from Excelsior Springs where I work.  They weathered an F2 tornado that scored a direct hit on their community and over 100 businesses were damaged or destroyed.  Thankfully(and astoundingly), no one was hurt or killed.  We have employees who live there and are grateful everyone is OK.  To help the Orrick community with their recovery, contact the Salvation Army at 1-800-SAL-ARMY to make a donation as they have been providing food and drink to those affected.
