Missouri tornado death toll passes 100

Video has emerged of the terrifying twister that left at least 116 people dead and hundreds injured in Joplin, Missouri. The tornado is the deadliest single twister on record since 1955.

The tornado was six miles long and half a mile wide with winds between 135 and 165 mph when it tore through Joplin on Sunday evening, damaging at least 2,000 buildings and crushing cars. A door-to-door search for survivors is still under way, according to the Joplin Globe.

Storm chasers caught this terrifying video, below, of the tornado forming. You can watch lightning strike in the middle of the twister:
