I didn't realize how close to Miami, OK Joplin, MO was until I saw it on the map today on the Weather channel....just a scant 29 miles. If the tornado had hit just a little southwest of Joplin the Newell factory might have been in the crosshairs.
I will give a prayer for Dave and his family, I hope that this finds them in good health!

Was another long day in Ok with storms. They had first said that a large tornado was headed straight for Edmond, and for a while I thought I may be living out of the Newell because it was headed in line with our neighborhood. Thankfully it missed us by about 10 miles.....those storms are now headed NE towards Miami. Talked to a friend that lives in Vinita about 25 minutes from Newell and he said flooding was the main concern there. Hope everyone stays safe!
