Sister in Missouri safe from tornado

Last night when I saw the news about the deaths due to the tornado the hit hardest in Seneca, Missouri, I had to call my sister Camille, who lives in Ozark 70 miles east, to check to see if see was all right.

She tells me that her house doesn't have a storm basement like most of the houses in her region because of the limestone underneath. She does have a weather radio that provides an alarm if a dangerous storm is approaching.

MSNBC is reporting that 18 were killed in Missouri and Oklahoma, and one in Georgia due to tornadoes.

I received a similar call from my sister right after 9/11.
