Friends~Missouri needs your prayers.
It has been raining consistently for at least 4 or 5 days a week for at least 3 weeks. We have had severe storms and tornados. Friday night there were several tornadoes that ripped through St. Louis. One of these tornadoes was an EF4 and destroyed several homes, blew out the windows of the airport and actually moved planes on the tarmac. By the grace of God, no one was killed in the entire city and there were just minor injuries.
We had to drive downtown on Sunday evening and I grabbed my camera at the last minute, here are some pics that I took while driving down the interstate.
The airport windows were boarded up.
While we haven't had any severe storms since Friday night, the rain has been a constant. There are Flash Flood warning everywhere and now the levee has broken in Poplar Bluff, MO, (about 150 miles from St. Louis) and the town is being evacuated. I just read a FB status from a friend who lives in my hometown, Bell City, MO, and she said that the levee outside of town has broken and that the river is 80 foot wide already and they will soon start evacuating, too.
We need your prayers, please!
