I'm down here in southern Missouri visiting my wife's family... we're 40 miles east of Joplin, Mo.
Here in Monett, the tornado sirens went off for almost 30 minutes. I think that's the longest I've ever heard them, and that's coming from a guy who grew up in Wichita.
I took some photos, but didn't bring my card reader. I'll download and post them later this week. We didn't see any tornadoes here, thankfully, just a lot of ominous clouds.
Thoughts and prayers to everyone in Joplin.
