Circuit City

With a weakened economy we are seeing more affects in the Midwest. One such affect is the closing of all Circuit City stores in the Kansas City Metro area. This was reported this morning on most of the Metro area news outlets as an issue that may not affect the Metro area, but I'm getting reports from people who I know that work in the affect stores. These reports are stating that all Kansas City area stores will close before the end of the year, according to a corporate letter that is circulating.

Kansas City Storms

With all of the bad weather around the area last night I went out and took some pictures of the damage this morning.

The first two images are a train that had five cars blown over when the dry line came through this morning.

The following picture was taken near I-635 in Riverside, MO.

Here is another picture of the same train taken towards the east.


Next is a series of pictures that I took near North Oak Trafficway and 72nd in Gladstone.

Next images is all that remains of the Cash America Pawn shop

Here's a closer look.

The next set of images were taken near Englewood and 169 highway Kansas City, MO North of the River.

Last but not least images from English Landing park in Parkville, MO
