Tornado Damage Won't Impact Biomass Conference
I’m sure those of you who are planning to fly to the International Biomass Conference & Expo in St. Louis have seen the devastation caused by tornadoes, but it won’t interrupt the event, which is being held next week (May 2-5).
Although the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport sustained some heavy damage, crews there were quick to clean up and resume flights. Luckily none of the hotels for the event or the baseball stadium were impacted so we’re good to go
Although many people suffered damage to their homes, and some homes were completely destroyed, there were no deaths or serious injuries. That’s not the case with other tornadoes that have devastated other communities in the Midwest and Southeast U.S.
The people in those tornado stricken areas probably aren’t ready to think about it just yet, but once they are in full clean-up mode there will be a lot of debris to deal with. I hope that someone will make good use of that material to produce renewable energy.
The best thing that we can do for St. Louis right now, other than picking up a shovel or a hammer to help with the clean-up, is to go there are support the local economy so they can rebuild.
If you haven’t done so already, you can register to attend the International Biomass Conference & Expo at www.biomassconference.com. Or, if you are in the area you can just come to the America’s Center and register on-site.
