Weather Saturday 10th in AR, MO & OK

Thank you to all of the customers, rep & vendors calling & checking on us here in Noel, MO. Luckily, we have no tragedies to report. All of our employees, friends & families are safe. We are located about 30 to 45 minutes from the closest damage.
There are very scary stories of people visiting family, leaving to go home & within minutes of leaving being pelleted with hail, rain & wind. After this passes returning to the house they just left, to find softball size hail had broken windows & a roof being torn off a garage. We have other tales of people driving down the road, not being able to see, wind pushing debris everywhere & then it is gone.
Newton county (where the northern tornado was), Benton county (strong straight line winds & smaller tornadoes) & Picher, OK (the complete town was devastated) are all within the 45 mintues of Gallery Graphics. We are very lucky to be located where we are.
Thank you again for your concerns. We are all safe & wish others in the community to a quick recovery.
