Saw the article this morning and figured I'd share since its proximity to D-Day makes it a bit more noteworthy for the forum.
Link to all the Midwest tornados of Sunday
City manager Mark Rohr announced the number of known dead at a pre-dawn news conference outside the wreckage of a hospital that took a direct hit from Sunday's storm. Rohr said the twister cut a path nearly 6 miles long and more than a half-mile wide through the center of town, adding that tornado sirens gave residents about a 20-minute warning before the tornado touched down on the city's west side.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said around 2,000 buildings were destroyed as the twister swept through this city of about 50,000 people some 160 miles south of Kansas City.
We got hit with a pretty ugly tornado same day, but nothing that remotely compares to this one.
