Rescuers race to find survivors of Joplin tornado

Rescue crews dug through piles of splintered houses and crushed cars Monday in a search for victims of a half-mile-wide tornado in Joplin that killed at least 116 people when it blasted much of this Missouri town off the map and slammed straight into its hospital. It was the nation's deadliest single twister in nearly 60 years and the second major tornado disaster in less than a month.
