Yesterday, a devastating tornado hit Joplin, Missouri, a town about 160 miles south of Kansas City. According to reports, 89 people have been confirmed dead due to the storm, which also left many buildings and structures in the city destroyed.
Joplin is also the hometown of Never Shout Never’s Christofer Drew. A representative from NSN’s management company confirms to AP that the band and their crew are okay, and that Drew’s home is also safe. The band has gathered there for the moment while they figure things out.
AP will have updates on this story as they develop. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to everyone in Joplin. If you’d like to help, you can find some resources here.
