State representative Bill Lant has become a two-time survivor of a major Joplin tornado. Lant lost his feed store in the tornado of 2008. Sunday night, he and several members of his family were at a Joplin restaurant with fellow Representative Bill White
Lant was interviewed on Missourinet affiliate KZRG in Joplin. He says they–and other customers and restaurant staff–survived but the restaurant was badly damaged.
Lant was able to drive his car home although it no longer has a windshield. Three years ago, another tornado destroyed his feed store in Joplin. He says people will get on with their lives, but first they need to get over what they have just gone through.
