Commemorating Five Years Since the Joplin Tornado

Sunday, it will be five years since the Joplin tornado. This was, in terms of deaths, the worst tornado since civilian warnings began in the late 1950's. One hundred sixty-one lost their lives.

The Kansas City Star has produced an exceptionally well done video documenting Joplin's recovery that I highly recommend. More on the Joplin tornado tomorrow. 


  1. That was very good - thanks for pointing it out. I do wish they had included more aerial shots of both the damage and recovery path.

  2. Found this recently posted video (From Joplin Globe) that includes recent drone footage. (didn't care for the background music though - muted it)
