Follow Up: Twisted Sister City
The body count is rising, and the football field at Missouri Southern State University was used for a temporary morgue. At least 116 people died in the tornado, which was ranked an F-4 the last time I heard. Joplin has made national news, and depending on who you listen to this was in the top ten worst tornadoes in recorded history. The numbers are constantly changing but at least a thousand are injured. Donations are pouring in from all around the country, and just about every business in Springfield has made some contribution to help with getting people stable and laying plans to rebuild.
