    89 people dead so far.
    I once considered moving to the Joplin area. Good thing I didn't.

    I'm just looking at videos and footage from it. OMG, it's just awful.

    Here's a link w/some vids. The second one is a first person view inside of a store. Nothing happens the first 2 minutes or so then all hell breaks lose. Can't see much but you can hear everything. Prayers out to everyone affected by these and all of the tornadoes.
