Bracing for a Second Storm

Janet Martin attempts to salvage medication and mementos from her brother's home before a second storm moves in, on May 23, 2011 in Joplin, Missouri.

'Twenty minutes before the storm, he left to go to church. He would have been in that basement if he hadn't gone,' Martin said.
