I stopped watching cable news a while back- basically when KO went off the air, I shut down all cable news. I just don’t watch it any more. I used to have it on in the background like radio all day, but nowadays I just open itunes and hit shuffle. So I didn’t even know this had happened until I read the Times this morning:
Much of this southwestern Missouri city lay in ruins on Monday morning after a massive tornado, the latest storm to ravage the Midwest and South this spring, tore through the area, killing at least 89 people. Officials say they expect the death toll to climb.
The twister, which touched down at about 6 p.m. Sunday, ripped apart buildings, touched off fires, uprooted trees and tossed cars, leaving them mangled stacks of metal.
The pictures are horrifying.
