May 13th was a Deadly Anniversary

Seems like just yesterday…but actually yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of the EF-2 tornado that Novinger and north Kirksville. The twister set down at 5:35 p.m. on May 13, 2009 producing EF-1 damage and killing one person, Joyce Green, off Highway Y near Milan. The tornado didn’t touch down again until just outside of Novinger as an EF-2. There is caused a lot of damage, and as it tracked toward northern Kirksville, the tornado killed Alisha Brune and Gus Ochoa.
