JOPLINTORNADO

David Blank looked for a spot to place an American flag found in the rubble of a home he was helping clean up at 2411 Kentucky in Joplin, Mo. on Thursday morning, May 26, 2011, following the tornado that swept through the city's central section on Sunday evening. Blank, who stopped to help William Brewer clean up his house, said he was driving to the area when his wife wanted to turn around to put their plants away in case of hail. "It's the one time in my life I've listened to her," Blank joked.
