Devastation in Joplin

We are all heartsick to hear about the catastrophic tornado damage that occurred in Joplin, MO last night, as well as in other areas of the Midwest.  See the New York Times story about Joplin here:  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/24/us/24tornado.html?_r=1&hp.  It gives better information than some other sources, particularly about St. John’s Regional Hospital in Joplin, which sustained a direct hit, and mentions near the end of the story that nurses who had been on the sixth floor when the tornado warning was announced, immediately began the appropriate response procedures.  Sources say that the tornado was “rain wrapped,” which made it difficult or impossible to see.
