Joseph Myers a Joplin, Mo. resident describes what it was like to be in Joplin as a tornado hit down, destroying the town and killing at least 89 people. "It came quick... it was like a train coming and then all of a sudden gusts of wind and then rain, real strong rain, hit the area. We're like two blocks away when this happened, mind you, and me and my friend were like, 'we're gonna die.' It was very, very close. It came in quickly and it left quick." Rachel Hubbard, general manager and news director at KOSU reports on the recovery efforts, which have kicked into gear.
