    Dozens are dead and even more injured after nearly 50 tornadoes tore though parts of the Midwest on Sunday...........At least 89 people were killed in Joplin, Mo., which received the worst of the severe weather. Damage was widespread across the city as homes, schools and a hospital were hit by a massive tornado.

    According to AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert, x-ray films from the hospital were found 70 miles away in a driveway.

    Meanwhile, school has already been canceled on Monday with one of the Joplin School District's buildings receiving catastrophic damage...........Many of the dead were residents looking to seek shelter when the buildings they were in collapsed.

    The tornado traveled 6 miles from the west side of the city to the southeast. The southern edge of the city was the hardest hit. The tornado ranged from half a mile to three-quarters of a mile wide. While the exact strength of the storm is yet to be determined, it could be upwards of an EF4.

    One of the most frightening videos I've ever heard. You really can't see anything in this video. You can just hear it. It's devastating. :(

    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    we don't need the son of a bitch. we're taking care of our own. aid is pouring in locally and wide spread from many other states. I donated some clothes today.

    WE CAN DO IT !!!
