Most of the images below are of the damage found along the Hwy 76 strip left by the Leap Day tornado. Yes, the destruction is so incredibly sad, but I think now more than ever, it’s important to focus on the positive. The majority of Branson homes and businesses were fortunate to have not been affected at all, and those areas which were damaged already have the cleanup and repair process well underway. Having done some disaster relief work in the past, I have had the experience of being in towns shortly after events such as this, and I can honestly say that I have never seen a community work so fast to cleanup and rebuild. It’s incredible to watch. I have no doubt that Branson is going to bounce back from this tornado in record time and be better than ever!
