While today’s weather is hampering continued clean-up of storm debris in Novinger and Kirksville, the City of Kirksville and the local Red Cross are actively working with affected individuals and with utility companies as rapidly and as safely as possible. In the meantime, the City is asking everyone to avoid traveling on Highway 63 from Wal-Mart north; in order to give emergency personnel sufficient room to operate and to reduce traffic congestion, please use alternate routes if possible. For updates on conditions, visit the City’s web site at www.kirksvillecity.com. If you need assistance or additional information from the City, please contact Melanie Smith, Community Services Director, at 660.627.1224.
Truman State University and A.T. Still University are cooperating in an effort to help the community recover from the tornadoes, and both institutions have been working with the City to best get out information to our campuses and to help the people who are affected in the most efficient manner.
At this time the local Red Cross is coordinating all volunteer efforts. If you would like to volunteer, contact the Red Cross at 660.665.5686; if you need assistance from the Red Cross, please call the same number.
