During 1977, he says, parts of Missouri experienced a devastating drought, while flash floods scourged other parts of the state. Probably one of the worst disasters Missouri has ever experienced was the flash flood in the Kansas City area in early September last year. At least 25 people lost their lives and public and private property damage ran into several million dollars. The area was declared a disaster area by President Carter. On May 5; other parts of the Kansas City area were blasted by vicious tornadoes. Again property damage amounted to millions. Fortunately there was no loss of life. Credit for this was given to ample warning time by the National Weather Service and Civil Defense. Two schools were destroyed by the storms, but suitable warning, plus well drilled children and teachers, prevented any loss of life or serious injury. These areas also were declared presi- dential disaster areas. Poplar Bluff was shaken by Southeast Missouri to pat for the retarded and handi- for sober reflection, capped children.

During 1977, he says, parts of Missouri experienced a devastating drought, while flash floods scourged other parts of the state. Probably one of the worst disasters Missouri has ever experienced was the flash flood in the Kansas City area in early September last year. At least 25 people lost their lives and public and private property damage ran into several million dollars. The area was declared a disaster area by President Carter. On May 5; other parts of the Kansas City area were blasted by vicious tornadoes. Again property damage amounted to millions. Fortunately there was no loss of life. Credit for this was given to ample warning time by the National Weather Service and Civil Defense. Two schools were destroyed by the storms, but suitable warning, plus well drilled children and teachers, prevented any loss of life or serious injury. These areas also were declared presi- dential disaster areas. Poplar Bluff was shaken by Southeast Missouri to pat for the retarded and handi- for sober reflection, capped children.
