Natural Disaster Hits Midwest, Hard
Officials in Missouri raised the death toll from the weekend’s deadly tornado to 117. In the town of Joplin alone, more than 100 people were killed. The twister waged a path of destruction across the Midwest, causing damage from Wisconsin to Texas. Though currently on a six-day Europe trip, President Obama plans to visit Missouri on Sunday. He may have more Midwest cities to visit, however, as more tornados are expected to hit today.
