“A monster tornado nearly a mile wide killed at least 116 people in Joplin, Missouri when it tore through the heart of the small Midwestern city, ripping the roof off a hospital and destroying thousands of homes and businesses. U.S. weather officials said the tornado that hit the city of 50,000 at dinnertime on Sunday was deadliest single tornado in the country since 1953.”
