As you can see, the path begins at Lindbergh Boulevard and travels east though Ladue, Clayton, Forest Park and the Central West End before ending at the river downtown. (The Joplin tornado measured 13 miles long and 3/4 miles wide, according to the National Weather Service.)

The image comes courtesy of Joplin architect Dwight Brennfoerder who has created maps of the storm's path in other cities, including New York and Kansas City. Check 'em all out at the Facebook page, Joplin Expats.
