Joplin Tornado Aftermath: Stunning Double Rainbow

I’m not one to often correlate random acts with other random acts, but this is quite the “wow” occurrence.

Shortly after the devastating tornado that ripped through Joplin, Missouri on Sunday, someone recorded a beautiful double rainbow in nearby Springfield, which is only about 75 miles away. It’s just amazing that the same storm front can produce something so terrible and something so ridiculously awesome at the same time.

The death toll has now risen to 116 in Joplin, as officials still search through the wreckage looking for survivors. The mile-wide tornado tore a six-mile path through the town, wrecking over 2,000 buildings and destroying about a quarter of the whole city.

Not only is the red cross helping out with shelters and its safeandwell site, but there have been multiple Facebook pages set up for the recovery and survivors. Even lost pets in Joplin have a Facebook page.

All the way.
