Missouri has had more than its fair share of bad weather the last few weeks – nearly 100 tornadoes rolled through the state three weeks ago, followed by storms last week and again this past weekend. Despite all the extra work, a spokesman for the State Emergency Management Agency says the state is handling all of it. Susie Stonner says the bulk of her agency’s work is to coordinate the help to the people who need it. Stonner says SEMA is used to working multiple disasters. She points to the Floods of 1993 and the rash of tornadoes three years ago of examples of being able to do that. Stonner also credits private relief agencies for the help they provide.
