A massive tornado -- now believed to be the fourth deadliest on record -- ripped though Joplin, Missouri, on Sunday afternoon. At least 89 people have been reported dead in the storm's six-mile-long wake.
Our sister newspaper, the Dallas Observer, had a photographer on the scene, who returned with some astonishing images. For more photos, visit the Observer's complete slideshow: Tornado Damage at Joplin, Missouri.
