The tornado that tore through Joplin May 22 destroyed an area that was 3/4 of a mile wide and 13.8 miles long, killing at least 153 people. The RFT's Albert Samaha visited the beleaguered city last weekend. In his report on the tragedy, he writes, "It's been three weeks since the tornado hit Joplin, but it looks like it could have happened yesterday."
