The tornado touched down at 5:41 p.m. Sunday, about 24 minutes after a warning was issued.
At least 117 people were killed in the disaster.
The place looks like it have been hit by a bomb in a big war.
Rescuers race to search for victims trapped under the rubbles of fallen trees, damaged buildings and smashed vehicles before it is too late.
But the work was slowed by a new round of very bad weather; including thunderstorms and hail two inches in diameter that rolled through the city Monday, as well as widespread problems with broken natural gas lines and other safety issues, authorities said.
Two rescuers were struck by lightning as they braved relentless rain and high winds searching for survivors.
By Monday night, they’d found 17 people alive.
I am very sad and sorry to see so many people died, a lot of people injured, have no houses to live in anymore and lost their things.
They must feel very sad.
More tornadoes are possible Tuesday in Joplin and other cities in the central U.S.
Anyway I hope that there will not be too much more tornado.
