    How much help is there to look for the missing? How many search and rescue dogs are there looking for the lost?
    Are any helicopters being used to look in the tops of homes where the roof has been ripped off? I hope the rescuers are also looking in near by trees for the victims who may have been tossled in the tornado. Every time I watch the news it breaks my heart to see all the victims families crying. It doesn't look like there are many rescuers looking for the missing from what I can see on the television. I hope the families have a ton of help with the search. This should be going on 24/7 lights and all. Get er' done ! Time is running out for the missing that are still alive and hidden in the rubble. It is very sad and must be frustrating for families to have to wait 2 weeks to see if there loved one is dead. Come on people! Some just want to know and have hope and or closure. Tonight I pray for the missing,injured,dead, and the families that are going through this traumatic time in there lives. God Bless America!

    Please stop showingd pictures of the tornado damage in Joplin. I get it . It was awful. Stop finding heartfelt stories of victims. Why would I want to hear them. I simply won't watch any more, and I truly don't think other people want to watch tornado coveraage.
