One news report so far:

NewsOn6.com

JOPLIN, Missouri -- A tornado has ravaged parts of Joplin Sunday, taking out hundreds of homes and businesses.

Jasper County Emergency Management Director Keith Stammer says a tornado hit the St. John's Regional Medical Center on the city's south side. He said there are multiple reports of injuries from the twister that struck around 6 p.m. Sunday.

Our sister station in Joplin reports massive damage with hundreds of people trapped in a Walmart and Lowe's.

Most of the damage was centered around Ridgeline Road, which is a major commercial strip in Joplin.

The EF3 tornado was rain wrapped making it difficult to see the track of the storm.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has shut down I-44 just outside of Miami because of overturned vehicles and debris on the highway.

It sounds like it hit a little bit (a couple of miles) to the east of their shops but I do not know exactly where their shops are located. I just have a pretty good idea where they are located.
