At least 132 people were killed and more than 900 people were injured.
By Friday, about 156 people were still missing.
The tornado that hit Joplin on Sunday was rated an EF-5 or the strongest possible.
It scored a direct hit on the city of 50,000 people in southwest Missouri and left a swath of destruction nearly a mile wide, damaging some 8,000 buildings.
I am very sad to see the photos.
So many people are suffering and there are children missing during the disaster.
I pray that they will be okay.
