    this doesnt even touch the surface on the amount of carnage that this tornado cast through out joplin i worked in that town for four years it hits hard to see it like this now i can only imagine what the people that call it home must feel losing loved ones and not being able to even locate them as well

    WOW! Watched the devastation they can do first hand as a kid back in Ohio, but MAN! I guess I shoulda figured on helicopters and what not being involved in the carnage these days...........In my day, it was mainly power lines, trees, some houses, barns and garages got jacked up, yeah trailer parks were toast, but maybe we just didn't have the media exposure or technology back then to see the real damage.

    I remember my dad showing me where a piece of hay, the day after, was blown straight through one of Grampa's hardwood fenceposts, and then later a 10" or so I-beam that hit the ground at a 45 or so angle, went 12 feet into the ground and was then bent straight verticle.........That I-beam was still there in the pasture when grampa died......they couldn't get it out with several tractors and a dozer or two.

    Very fortunate dude!

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Being from Ohio originally and now SE Iowa, I've seen all to many times what distruction a tornado can cause. I know our whole unit wishes we were back home to be able to go down and help. Times like these is why most of us are in the National Guard. I'm sure the govenor has everyone he can helping down there. All the victims and thier families are in our prayers.

    Absolutely devastating. Be thankful for what you have and help out your neighbor.

    I say for all those that donate $$ to international charities and institutions, reconsider donating to focus on AMERICANS who in many areas really need our help.

    I work for Modine. We have a plant that employes 250 people in Joplin. The tornado set down one mile from the plant. At this point all I can gather is one plant employee died, with over 10 still unaccounted for and nearly 20 losing everything they owned. The company and employees are donating money and resources to the victims Through various avenues.

    The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud

    There is nothing that I can say; The devastation is beyond anything short of a nuclear bomb. What a sad situation. My heart goes out to all of these people.
