Joplin,Missouri need your help.

Sunday May 22nd, Joplin Missouri was hit by a EF5 tornado, the strongest rating on the enhanced fujita scale, with winds in excess of over 200 miles an hour.

As of today the 24th of May at 8:10 p.m. there have been 124 confirmed dead & 1500 people still missing.

The twister was 1/4 a mile wide and stayed on the ground for over 6 miles, from the air it looks like a atomic bomb was dropped on the town,everywhere you look is udder devastation.

The tornado that hit Joplin is the single deadliest tornado in 60 years, it destroyed the local St. Johns medical center and they have been treating the walking wounded since Monday in a makeshift emergency room.

If you want to make a donation I would recommend calling 1-800-Red-Cross.

Also a new series of storms are about to enter in Joplin, now and the media is asking that everyone to evacuate the area for fear that another tornado or even high winds would create a extremely dangerous situation with the loose debri flying in the air like missles.
