A tornado ripped through Caruthersville last night. I have talked to my aunt and uncle who are ok, but we have many more friends and relatives there that I have not been able to reach. There is not much detail on the news telling us exactly what area was taken out in C'Ville, just that there is a state of emergency and a large portion of the town was effected. If anyone knows what's going on, please respond to this message. I will keep checking this forum. If you have names of anyone that is ok, please mention them to help those of us that are in other parts of the country know who's ok. Our prayers are with everyone in Caruthersville and all the other areas hit yesterday. Thank you.

I can not get much info on the news but hopefully can get some
second hand info from anyone knowing anyone there in C'Ville.
I have a nearly new fifth wheel trailer that I might be able to
get down there pretty soon if the need arises. I have friends
in the general area, including Braggy, Kennett and Deering but
have been unable to hear back from them as yet. I live near
Springfield. Thanks.

I also live out of state but grew up in C'Ville. I have received emails from several friends in town. If you are familiar with the area - Knox's Drive In and Kwik Check were both destroyed. The neighborhood behind those businesses were either destroyed or severely damaged. Many homes on Parkview were also either destroyed or severely damaged. A news quote from mayor Diane Sayer did say at that time that no deaths were reported.

Thanks for the comments. I am very thankful
that there were no deaths reported there. I am very familiar
with the two businesses you mentioned. I heard that the
high school was heavily damaged as well.

Hey everyone - I was on Topix.com, Local Forums, Caruthersville MO and someone had a link to pix they had taken in C'Ville. Go to Topix.com, look for the word Local on top, click that and follow the directions to get to Caruthersville. I tried to copy and paste the link here but it wouldn't work. There are some startling pictures of what's left of Knox's, Kwik Check, 18th Ave, Ward Ave, Truman Blvd., High School, Jr High, etc. There are a LOT of comments there also.

I am waiting to hear from my Aunt and Uncle, Aaron and Aileen Maxey. They live on Marilyn Street, just inside the city. Can't get through on the phone lines. I live in Jefferson City, Missouri. Any news is appreciated, thanks.

Hi DiAnne - from what I understand, Caruthersville north of 13th street is ok, everything south of 13th st got hit. The phone lines are coming up slowly. I'm not sure if cellphones are working in the area yet. I'm going down there tonight and will know more then.

I have heard that one person was killed in Braggy.
Does anyone know if that is true and whom it might
have been? My friend, Glen Cannon and his family,
live there and I have been unable to reach them.
