When I was out visiting my family in Missouri, my dad, brother and I went to Downstream Casino which is near Joplin. We usually go each time I'm out there. As usually we didn't win any money.
On the way back to Springfield, we drove through Joplin to see what progress has been made in rebuilding since that terrible tornado almost a year and a half ago.
As you can see by the pictures below some progress has been made. But there are also areas that look like they haven't been touched except to remove the rubble.
The last picture is of the new hospital being built.
