The extent of the damage and destruction from Sunday evening’s tornado in Joplin, Missouri is incredible. I admit the media often overuse words like amazing and unbelievable. Trust me, we’re not guilty of throwing about descriptive words and phrases like that in this situation.
In my two days covering the story in Joplin, I met several veterans of disasters, and veterans of war. They all said this is the worst they’ve ever seen. Here’s a video I took describing in my own words just how bad it is. I also took lots of pictures, and talked to many survivors and searchers in Joplin.
