The Fifth Anniversary of the Joplin Tornado: Lessons Learned

Five years have passed since Joplin was hit by a massive tornado that leveled a significant portion of the town and killed more than 150 people. Kathy Macomber and Janet LaFon discuss the long term recovery efforts. Rick Atterberry, University of Illinois Extension, will moderate. Click here to join the live webinar as a guest. The room will be unavailable until 15 minutes prior to the live event.

See the NOAA NWS April and May 2011 tornado timeline to see the cost in terms of lives lost and economies. 

Our 2016 series is held on the second Tuesday of every month at 1 PM Eastern, with the exception of October’s webinar. It will be held October 4. We hope you can join us.
