Joplin Tornado Leaves Thousands With No Place to Call Home | Joplin, Missouri | Reuters
It’s been four shelters in eight days for Rosalee Wilson, one of thousands of Joplin residents left homeless by the massive May 22 tornado.
“I don’t like it,” Wilson, 71, said Monday as she stood by her cot in a gym-turned-dormitory at Missouri Southern State University. “You never know where anything is and just when you get familiar with a place you get uprooted again.”
Wilson was among about 175 people who spent Sunday night at the Red Cross shelter, one of the many landing places for those who lost their homes and apartments in the tornado.
