Info

George Allman of 2408 Empire in Joplin, Mo. walked through his kitchen inside his heavily damaged home on November 7, 2011, nearly toppled from the May 22nd EF-5 tornado. Allman, who was buying the house on a contract-for-deed, showed that his landlord threatened to evict him if he did not come up with the entire $3,500 left on the contract. Allman's friends eventually helped him pay it off and he is now fixing the house with donated parts from other damaged homes in his neighborhood.
