U.s. Tornado Left Scores of People Killed

At least 30 people were killed in the tornado that struck the city of Joplin, Missouri, USA.

The city was the "direct impact" of tornadoes and several parts of the city were destroyed, local media reported.

The governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, declared a state of emergency and warned that more storms are coming.

Last month, tornadoes and storms claimed the lives of at least 350 people in Alabama and six other southern states.

John Miller, forógrafo local newspaper, described the bleak landscape in Joplin: "Home Depot was destroyed. Walmart destroyed. Gasoline stations, buildings. Wherever you look damaged or completely destroyed."

Witnesses said ambulances were lined up outside a Wal-Mart store amid reports that hundreds of people were trapped inside.

Officials from St. John's Hospital in Joplin said the building had been severely damaged. A resident who lives 45 miles away said the hospital debris had landed in her yard, including medical supplies, X-ray.

County Coroner Mark Bridges, told Reuters news agency by telephone that at least 30 people were killed.

In their tour of Ireland, the U.S. president sent his condolences to those affected.

"Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in tornadoes and bad weather that affected Joplin, Missouri, as well as communities throughout the Midwest," he said in a statement.

"We commend the heroic efforts of those who have responded and are working to help their friends and neighbors in this very difficult time."

Nixon informed the governor that the storms also caused damage in Missouri

"They continue to pose a significant risk to our lives and our property," he said in a statement.

"As a state, we are deploying all available resources and agencies to give security to the families of Missouri, look for the missing, to provide emergency medical care and start rebuilding," he said.
