JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — A massive tornado that tore a 6-mile path across southwestern Missouri killed at least 89 people as it slammed into the city of Joplin, ripping into a hospital, crushing cars like soda cans and leaving a forest of splintered tree trunks behind where entire neighborhoods once stood.
FULTON — A tornado reported by weather spotters at 6:59 p.m. Tuesday barely earned its title, said a National Weather Service spokesman.
“It touched down about eight miles north of Fulton but no details were filed after that report,” said NWS Meteorologist Don Morin, in Sioux Falls.
Hanson County Emergency Management Director Kevin Kayser and Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Lentsch, both trained weather spotters, reported funnel clouds north of Fulton shortly before 7 p.m. and an actual tornado shortly thereafter.
