And some good news from Joplin:
The woman in this photo lost her family home in the tornado on May 22, 2011.
She and her family returned to their home yesterday (June 7th) one last time to take a look at what used to be their house.
They heard a cat crying, and began digging like crazy.
The homeowner moved a board and wedged under it was her 13-year old cat, Lavern.
Alive after 16 days.
Doesn't her expression say it all?
