This is horrible and the most recent reports state that 24 are dead.  This must have been one more huge tornado and I hope they stop soon.  Here are a couple images that were posted on Twitpic of St. John’s Hospital.

One more image from another site here.  I also read somewhere else on the web that the hospital caught fire but everyone was evacuated and there was a reported gas leak.

A video on YouTube from the Weather Channel also shows the devastation and at the end you can see some additional footage of the hospital.  The news stated that they had a plan for preparedness and were moving patients to other hospitals.  When you look at the video everything is just hanging out of the windows at the hospital.  BD
