Downtown Hannibal, MO Cleans Up After Powerful Storm
Hannibal Courier-Post from getting a print edition to readers. Reporters there, including Dominic Genetti, used the internet and social media to provide news updates on damage caused by 90 mile-an-hour winds.

Genetti says the worst damage he saw Tuesday morning was in the city's historic downtown, where a few shops, including the local dog groomer, took a major hit:
"The roof caved in - thanks to some bricks that were blown around - crashing in on an art gallery [below] and a couple of the little stores you see down there. But the biggest damage on Main Street has to be a building just adjacent to that. The entire third floor has just been... blown out."
