Mission Joplin: Volunteers Of Hope

JOPLIN, Mo. (CBSDFW.COM) – On the afternoon of May 22, an EF-5 tornado ripped through the city of Joplin, Missouri, killing over 150 people.

CBS 11 News at 6 producer Stewart McKenzie was part of the group that traveled to Missouri.  He and others documented their trip.  Here is a look back at his daily reports from the damage:

    Thanks for keeping this in the news! I went with a group in June and we too were changed. Seeing it in person is overwhelming! I think of the people of Joplin almost daily.
