May 21, 2021

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement ahead of tomorrow’s 10-year anniversary of the 2011 Joplin tornado:

“When the tornado struck Joplin on May 22, 2011, there were first responders who rushed to provide aid, volunteers who worked tirelessly to help their neighbors, and friends and family who were there for one another as they mourned the loss of life and destruction. The people of Joplin showed the country the power of faith and community. They demonstrated the strength and resilience that make us proud to be Missourians. As we take time to remember the victims of this tragedy, I hope we will also reflect on the incredible job the Joplin community has done to recover, rebuild, and emerge from this crisis even stronger than they were before.”
