Joplin Mo. tornado

JOPLIN, Mo. – A massive tornado that tore a four-mile path across southwestern Missouri killed at least 89 people as it slammed into the city of Joplin, ripping into a hospital and leaving a forest of splintered tree trunks behind where entire neighborhoods once stood.
Authorities warned that the death toll could climb Monday as search and rescuers continued their work at sunrise.

This tornado was headed straight to where two of my daughters are. Kaleena and her husband were at home and Joy was at work at Wal Mart in Branson. Joplin is just a few miles from the bible school my 18 year old Joy just graduated from. The school has and has had many students from this area, so many of their families may be involved. My heart and prayers go out to the people affected. Also to all the people devastated by other events around the world.
