    I have not been able to get in touch with my buddy Mike, who is an Fire Inspector with the Branson FD. I hope all is ok down there.

    Oscar,

    I live near Branson and work there. Local reports are that about 37 people reported injuries and the worst was a broken leg.

    The link above will show some of the damage here. Haven't heard an official report on the F-scale of the one that hit but it bounced along a 7 mile path through town. It also did a lot of damage before it got here and again after it left.

    I've got 24' of fence to put back up. Mailman just came by and said I'm lucky, damage is everywhere. NE Indiana. They really got hammered south of here. Hope everyone is ok.

    The pictures of the destruction are hard to believe. Devastation is not too strong a word. How some of those old people will ever recover I cannot imagine.

    I work in Branson and we were told today that there were NO deaths in Branson. Don't know your buddy, but chances are he is working his rear off right now, but is OK. Jack
