Did you know there is a National Hamburger Day? I didn't, but it doesn't surprise me. It seems like there is a "national" day for just about everything. National Hamburger Day will be on May 28.

Where would you order from?
On May 20, 2013, straight-line winds from severe storms resulted in significant damage to homes and businesses in Hannibal. Marion County Emergency Management Director John Hark estimated that "most" of the city, perhaps as much as 80%, was affected in some way by the storm. Power was out in parts of Hannibal for multiple days, and some residents reported that buying groceries in the city was difficult because so many businesses were closed due to the outage. See our photo gallery of damage from around America's Hometown.
