A tornado with winds whipping at 190-198 mph touched down in Joplin, MO, on Sunday, killing 117 people. Thunderstorms and rainy weather today continued to keep residents on edge.

Rescue crews have pulled 7 people from the rumble, but the search continues to find more survivors in piles of splintered houses and crushed cars.

According to NBC News, this was the single deadliest tornado since 1947. With a base of 3/4 mile across, the tornado destroyed everything in its path, creating a debris cloud of almost 18,000 feet in the air.
