The tornado in Joplin, Mo., has dealt severe economic damage to a community still struggling to recover from the Great Recession.

The economic effect still is hurting Joplin. This will be a perfect resource in my paper because it really shows how Joplin is still hurting.  In the article it talks about how they are still trying to rebuild and get out of debt again.  I will use this in my paper when I talk about the after effects of the tornado.

Joplin Tornado Leaves Behind Environmental Hazards

Joplin Tornado Leaves Behind Environmental Hazards | Joplin Tornado | Scoop.it
JOPLIN, Mo. -- As residents confront a gigantic cleanup following the tornado that savaged Joplin, experts say environmental dangers could lurk amid the mountains of debris in the southwestern Missouri city and even in the water and air.
Kristin Olson's insight:

I will use this when I talk about how the environment was damaged.  This article talks about how all the debris from the tornado had to go somewhere and it just polluted the earth more with garbage.  Also there were lots of leaking gases from houses and cars.  This was very unsafe because there were lots of un healthy gases people were breathing in.
