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.

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
