90 Dead in Joplin Missouri After Tornado

Posted by on May 23, 2011 in Tornado |

The death toll in Joplin, Mo., rose to 90 today as officials described the monster tornado that hit the city as a “once in a generation event.”

Meteorological records show that this was the deadliest tornado since 1953 when a twister hit Worcester, Mass., and caused 90 fatalities.

I normally do not write about storms. But since this deadly tornado hit in my home state of Missouri, I thought I’d at least give it a link if you’re interested in seeking some crazy storm footage.
