Miracle in the ruins of the Joplin tornado

Here’s a video with stunning audio that makes up for the lack of visuals — as you hear for yourself the tornado ripping through the Fastrip convenience store near Range Line Road. Then, the second video shows where it all happened.

Isaac Duncan says he heard reports that a tornado was literally around the corner. So he and a friend ran into the closest place they could find, the Fastrip store, according to CNN. This video taken inside the store’s freezer where he and about 20 people took shelter documents the terror they experienced as the tornado hit the store.

The twister killed at least 125 people — but at last 1,500 are missing and unaccounted for.

As you watch the first video here, listen to how calm the store’s customers are as they try to figure out what to do about the approaching storm. Then it hits. One woman cries out to Jesus over and over as the small walk-in cooler is apparently packed with 20 or so people crammed in on top of each other.

Then, watch this follow-up video — showing the devastated store and the intact walk-in where 20 people’s lives were spared.

    I have been praying for these people since I heard of the first Tornado. My heart goes out to all of you, and I am so moved right now. The strength and calmness of some of these people is amazing. I hope all those that are missing will be found so families can have closier. I pray that the worst is over, and these people can re-group and collect themselves. I pray for them each time I watch the news, and hope that all will be calm so they can catch there breath and decide what to do next. God bless all of you and I hope you can recover from the devistation.

    Every one knew who to call upon in time of need. Jesus is just a breath away, with out those calling upon his name they caould of all been killed. Thank God there is still a few people who can call upon his name.
    May God Bless everyone that was in contact wuth these terrible storms.

    Yes thank goodness everyone is safe but, it’s sad cause the owner sacrificed himself and died leaving behind his family. He told his customers to get into the freezer and tried himself to hold the door shut on the outside and lost his life. Yes the lord works in mysterious ways but, my heart and prayers go out to this gentlemans family.

      We have attempted to confirm this report of the owner’s death, but cannot. We did find that Fastrip is owned by a large corporation, not a local owner. Also, both the Associated Press and CNN reported that no one was killed at the store.

    he tornado hi in the first video and I could hear how scared everyone was, I couldn’t help but cry. I live in the caribbean and have never experienced a tornado and only one slight tremor a few years ago. For me hearing this was scary and hearing the lady praying and calling on Jesus brought even more tears to my eyes. The devastation in the second video was shocking to me. I know scripture warns of even worse things happening in the not to distant future and my prayers are with you all. Not to say that troubles won’t come to my neck of the woods but through it all a strong dependence on Almighty God is very important.
