Joplin remembers Moore during anniversary - Pittsburg Morning Sun

Joplin remembers Moore during anniversary

From the Pittsburg (KS) Morning Sun…

…Thad Beeler, Carthage, is with National Disaster Photo Rescue, an organization born at the Carthage First Baptist Church after the Joplin tornado to help reunite Joplin residents with photos recovered from all across Southwest Missouri in the wake of the EF5 tornado that hurled them miles away.

Beeler said his group has collected 35,000 photos since the Joplin tornado and returned 16,000 to their rightful owners.

Now he’s working to help the residents of Moore recover photos again hurled miles from their starting point.

“We’ve got a process and we know what to do and we want to take what we’ve learned and help others across the country,” Beeler said. “I’ve been working with local people in Moore over social media to help them get started. I just found out that the Red Cross has thousands of photos and documents already collected and ready to turn over to someone.”

Beeler said recovering photos and documents won’t become a priority until after the search and rescue efforts are completed, but he hopes to go to Moore soon to help them set up a recovery system for photos and documents.
