Joplin, in the mix of physics

May 22nd, 2011
Rated as a high end F4...198mph winds.

Joplin is merely 160 miles from me and I can certainly relate to the issues of the results of tornadoes...I have been in three but one must be humbled, despite the tragedy, that mankind has a rather precarious relationship with the physics of nature. Recall earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunami, volcanoes.
