After destructive tornadoes ripped through Missouri, many families are searching for missing family members. This gut-wrenching story reveals how a person’s experience with the storm can change in a matter of minutes. It’s terrible that people have to go through experiences like these. I couldn’t imagine losing everything due to a factor completely out of control. Sandra Hooker, the mother of 9-year-old Anniysta Hooker, had no idea her daughter’s life would be over minutes after sending a picture to her sister. It’s frightening how your life can change in a matter of minutes. The Odyssey staff gives our deepest condolences to those affected by the tornadoes. 


9-year-old took photo with sisters to show she was ‘safe.’ Minutes later, a tornado hit her home.
