Storm chasers Jeff and Kathryn Piotrowski have new video of not only the mile-wide EF5 tornado that ripped through Joplin but also the aftermath (TornadoAlleyVideo via Heycameraman). It's not for the fainthearted.

The death toll in Joplin now stands at 141. Meanwhile, rebuilding Joplin could take up to two years, a University of Missouri-Kansas City professor told KSHB's Sloane Heller.



Finally, if you missed the memorial service for the victims of the Joplin twister, here's the full video from CSPAN (via the Turner Report).
