    I'm about 20 miles away. This storm system hooked just by
    my little NE OK town and watching these live shots on Weather Channel,
    it's incredible. Nothing left standing in the neighborhood by St. John's
    Hospital, and it took a hellish hit. http://twitpic.com/51apfz
    The guy on WC's live coverage said he's observed multiple fatalities.

    They said it was wrapped in rain and hail, meaning it was disguised, people didn't know it was coming.

    They said it stripped bark from trees, meaning, winds in excess of 150 mph.

    Nails with shingles all over the place.

    Joplin High School has been severely damaged. The graduation was today, but was held at Missouri Southern.

    St. John's hospital was also hit hard by the tornado. One resident living nearly 45-miles away from the hospital says his yard is now full of debris from the hospital-- medical supplies and x-rays.

    Officials say the hospital is severely damaged. Chunks of the building were taken out and windows were blown out.

    Eastbound and westbound I-44 is closed at mile marker 18 near Joplin due to overturned tractor trailers during severe weather.

    John Kurtz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Springfield, said that the NWS will not be able to determine the size of the tornado that struck Joplin until Monday morning when they dispatch a damage survey team.

    Joplin MO is a city of about 50,000, btw. For everyone who grew up in the KS-MO-OK area, it was always the weekend "town to go to" as it has a large mall, movie theaters, all the stuff little towns don't.

    reporting a good portion of Joplin destroyed. I hope that is not accurate. No one saw it coming.
