Caruthersville is a town like many others across America. With a population of only around 6,000 people, it is a very close-knit community. I personally love Caruthersville because of the sense of community. In 2006, a tornado hit the down, destroying dozens of homes, businesses, and churches. To see the people of Caruthersville rally together to support each other through this tragedy was amazing. Everyone was cared for, and the town bounced back. This is my home, and I am proud to have grown up here.

Caruthersville is a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river in the bootheel of Missouri it has a population of about 8000 .I had the pleasure of getting to grow up. Here and live the herratige of this town .
Caruthersville is a very small town, quiet, with not a lot of stores. The only interesting thing about it is probably the casino. Not that many places to eat and not many job opportunities.
