F-3 Tornado Damage

Pierce City, Missouri - May 4, 2003

Along my journey from St. Louis to Oklahoma in 2004, I made a stop in Pierce City Missouri. A year ago, on May 4th, 2003 the small town was hammered by an F3 tornado. Most of the town's main street was destroyed and now a year later, it's still obvious what happened here. There are numerous plots of land where the remains of some of the ruined buildings have been bulldozed. Some of the structures were 140 year old historical buildings. There was one fatality here and there were 6 other killer tornadoes that formed that day across Kansas and Missouri.
