You Should Absolutely Avoid These 5 Things In Missouri
Tornadoes can be incredibly destructive and sometimes even deadly. Some of the worst tornadoes in American history have torn through Missouri. If you can, this force of nature is one you want to avoid. The clash of air masses occur over Missouri during spring, especially in April and May, as remnants of winter do not want to let go and summer heat is just around the corner. Thunderstorms are common during this transition season and, every once in a while, all the ingredients fall into place for severe thunderstorms that can bring flooding rains, damaging hail, and strong winds. Another more elusive ingredient that can be associated with severe thunderstorms, and also the most terrifying, is the tornado, claimed Onlyinyourstate.

Missouri makes top 10 list of places to avoid visitingMissouri is number seven on the list. Fodor’s notes the state is where, among other things: SB 43 was passed making it more difficult to sue employers for discrimination, a state representative argued that homosexuals weren’t human beings, a tourist who got lost and ran out of gas was later found murdered in his jail cell without ever being put under arrest, and two men were hunted down and shot on suspicion of being Muslim on the outskirts of Kansas City.
The publication relies heavily on statements in a travel advisory released by the NAACP of Missouri.
State NAACP chapter President Nimrod Chapel claims Missouri government discriminates against people of color, women, the disabled, senior citizens, foreigners, and people of faith. Chapel also contends that people should be aware of the danger presented by the way laws are enforced in the state.
The travel advisory has been criticized by some Republican state lawmakers and was originally opposed by the St. Louis branch of the NAACP. Days after saying the advisory would hurt people of color who work in the hospitality industry, Esther Haywood, president of the NAACP St. Louis County chapter issued a statement “wholeheartedly” supporting it.
Among the other destinations Fodor’s advises against visiting are Honduras, because of its high rate of murder and danger to members of the LGBTQ community, and Beijing, China, due to the city’s overwhelming smog.
The publication did praise Missouri for having breathtaking limestone caverns, the Budweiser Clydesdales, Kansas City-style BBQ, great jazz, the Silver Dollar City Amusement Park, and even a museum that purports to house the holy finger of John the Baptist, according to Missourinet.
