Meteorologist Greg Forbes from The Weather Channel says that the Joplin, MO tornado may be ranked as the third worst in U.S. history.

The Joplin, MO tornado, which occurred on May 22 just over 6 months ago was one of the deadliest tornadoes in history. Over 150 deaths were reported, making it the 7th deadliest tornado in modern history in the U.S. Even with the 5 other EF-5 tornadoes this year, this one may be the 3rd worst in U.S. history says Meteorologist Greg Forbes of The Weather Channel.

His blog was very interesting and is worth a read.

It's crazy to think he ranks this worse than the Phil Cambell/Hackleburg, AL tornado, the EF-4 Tuscaloosa to Birmingham, AL tornado, as well as the May, 3 1999 Moore, OK tornado.
