The Aftermath of an EF5 Tornado

May 23, 2013

The deadly tornado earlier this week in Oklahoma recalls other recent tornado disasters in the Midwest. Today on River To River, host Ben Kieffer talks with survivors of the devastating tornado in Joplin, Missouri in 2011…and the twister that struck the Parkersburg/New Hartford area here in Iowa 5 years ago. Some experts join the conversation as well, to shed more light on the effect of the EF5 tornado that tore through Oklahoma.

Bur first, Iowa Public Radio reporter Durrie Bouscaren sits down with Ben to discuss the latest in the ongoing search for the missing girl from Dayton, IA.
