On May 22, a massive tornado tore through Joplin, Mo., killing more than 160 people and devastating a large part of the city. It was one in a chain of deadly tornadoes that swept across the nation in the spring. Mayor Mike Woolston talked to American City & County about the city's recovery and reports that the strain on the Federal Emergency Management's budget from other disaster, such as Hurricane Irene and wildfires in the Southwest, had threatened recovery funds for the city.
