I have been saying for years that the age of Obama would result in the destruction of America, as we know it, and the current news headlines are providing the evidence of this. From the "evolutionary flash point" of the recession-ruined economy to the collapse of the U.S. dollar to the escalation in immorality to the unprecedented destruction from Earth changes. Against the background of the monumental and record-breaking weather systems experienced during the month of April, Americans wake up this morning to the news of the death toll of 89 persons, from the devastating tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri. A figure which is likely to increase if you consider Missouri Governor, Jay Nixon's declaration that there are many still buried under heavy rubbles across the city. Search-and-rescue and relief crews race against an approaching storm, but their efforts are complicated by downed power lines, fires and transportation problems. They have been poring through rubble, wreckage and all that was left in many areas of Joplin, where more than 2,000 structures have been ripped apart and whole neighborhoods have been obliterated over a six-mile path through southwestern Missouri.
"I would say 75% of the town is virtually gone," said Kathy Dennis of the American Red Cross.

The following video, although poorly lit, is a first person visual capture of the tornado that passed through Joplin, Missouri.
The video I took while at Fastrip on East 20th street. We huddled in the back of the store until the glass got sucked out , then ran into the walk in storage fridge. Sorry for the lack of visuals but the audio is pretty telling of how intense the storm was. The tornado hits at around 1:20 seconds. - IZELSG, Youtube member.
