Joplin Was NOT Hit By a Tornado This Evening

Thanks to my friend Jesse Ferrell of AccuWeather, I wanted to dispel the false reports on the internet that Joplin was again hit by a tornado this evening (8th anniversary of the 2011 storm). Joplin is highlighted by a rectangle at the bottom. The large, violent tornado - illustrated by the red-light blue line - passed to the north hitting the south part of Carl Junction and passed over or very near Oronogo.

Addition: Jesse just sent this wider view from Baxter Springs to Golden City.

UPDATE 11:22PM
We just received a report of three people killed with the tornado north of Joplin. I don't have any more details.
