George Allman of 2408 Empire in Joplin, Mo. still lives in his heavily damaged home which was nearly destroyed from the May 22nd EF-5 tornado. Allman, who was buying the house on a contract-for-deed, showed that his landlord threatened to evict him if he did not come up with the entire $3,500 left on the contract. Allman's friends eventually helped him pay it off and he is now fixing the house with donated parts from other damaged homes in his neighborhood. DAVID EULITT/The Kansas City Star
