Joplin, Missouri was hit hard by a tornado yesterday. A major hospital, nursing homes, apartment buildings, homes, and businesses were hit with little warning. People are missing, a large section of the city is in ruin.

I live an hour away but spend quite a bit of time there shopping and such since it is the largest city nearby so I feel affected, even if indirectly.

Please say a prayer for the people of Joplin in this difficult time.

Nice thought Jmanski. I saw reports on the news late last night. They said it was a 1 mile wide by 3 mile long path. Incredibly damaging.

Tornado itself was about 3/4 mile wide while the damage path is closer to 2 miles wide.
