Tornado Devastation in MO Unbelievable

After the massive tornado tore through Joplin Missouri late Sunday, survivors were saying the devastation reminded them of old WWII footage.

At least 89 people are known dead from the twister that ripped a six mile swath through city of over 50,000 people, and devastated the high school, hospital, and other significant buildings.  The storm materialized quickly and residents had only about a 20 min warning.   Officials estimate 1/4 of the city was affected in at least some form.  The winds were so severe that medical records and xrays from the hospital were dropping from the sky in nearby Greene County, some 60 miles away from Joplin.  Officials fear the death toll will climb well above 100 as rescue crews keep coming across homes and cars caught by the tornado where people had no chance to escape.
