- The fact that the Branson’s Nantucket Resort survived the EF-2 Tornado that hit
the town of Branson during the early morning hours of February 29 can only be
attributed to an act of the almighty. The luxury timeshare development of
Branson’s Nantucket, which is situated in the shadow of the Ozark Mountains, on
the scenic banks of Branson’s Table Rock Lake avoided certain destruction as wall
of tornadoes tore through at least five states, causing extensive damage and
killing at least one person in Missouri. Although final casualty figures in the
tourist haven of Branson are still uncertain, at least a dozen injuries have
been reported in the area, and police officers were still checking properties in
search of as yet unreported victims until the early hours of Monday morning.
The tornado left a trail of devastation in its wake, forcing
many homeowners and tenants to seek shelter where they could, and those
displaced, by the fierce one-hundred and twenty mile-per-hour winds, found
refuge in local schools, community centers and churches.
Tourist officials however have been paying down the scale of
the destruction saying that February is a quiet time for Branson, and that most
of the big-name entertainers generally don't get there until later in the
spring, therefore the city and its facilities will be open for business as
usual. As is the luxury, points based timeshare resort of Branson’s Nantucket
and all of the great other attractions surrounding it.
In an earlier news release, the authorities also denied
reports that Branson Airport had suffered the damage reported in some media
circles, and said that flights had been continuing, only hours after the storms
past, with no delays. Furthermore all major attractions including Silver Dollar
City, Show Boat Branson Belle and the Sight and Sound Theater also suffered
only minimal, or no damage whatsoever, and along with the theatres, Malls,
restaurants, Branson’s Nantucket Resort and retail stores will be open as
usual. The statement concluded by saying that “the city of Branson,” along with
the, “will be open and welcoming visitors to the live Music Capital of the
Gov. Jay Dixon declared the county, which includes Branson,
and the Branson’s Nantucket Resort, a disaster area, but a later news release
stated that, "The resilience of the Ozark people, their faith and
steadfast nature will shine through this unfortunate situation and Branson will
rebuild and recover quickly,"
Branson’s Mayor Raeanne
Presley; Lynn Berry,
Branson CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureau) director of public
relations; Dean Kruithof,
city administrator; Garrett
Anderson, assistant city administrator; and Ted Martin, Branson fire chief, all signed the statement giving a
clear indication that Branson, and the resort of Branson’s Nantucket are still
well and truly on the tourist map for 2012.
