Before And After Photos: Devastation Of The Joplin, Missouri Tornado

28 05 2011

These photos(from AP) are of Joplin, Missouri before and after the powerful tornado(twister) tore the city.

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.

It is reportedly the worst single tornado in modern US history.

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.
