The Joplin, MO tornado is the single deadliest U.S. tornado since the Worsester, MA 1953 tornado. Will likely get in the top 15 of all time! :-(
*Update at 3:25 CT* Unfortunately, the death toll in Joplin, MO has risen to 116 people. That would make it the 9th deadliest US tornado of all time. One behind the New Richmond, WI tornado in 1899... Beyond horrible!
