The town of joplin has been hit with a destructive tornado.
The town of Joplin, Missouri, was hit by the most devastating tornado in decades. Over half a mile wide and three-quarters of a mile long, the tornado wreaked devastating havoc and leveled the town in a matter of minutes. With a climbing death toll, rescues are hurrying to find as many people as possible in an effort to save lifes.
Unfortunately, the town was not hit by one tornado but a series of storms that seem to add insult to injury. To get a glimpse at how powerful the storm was, watch this video of the storm filmed by Basehunters team of storm chasers.
There is not much that can be said about the pain and hurt the residents of Joplin must feel after seeing their town reduced to rumble, and the most that can be done (besides donating or assisting in the relieve effort) is praying for the affected people and the town.
