On May 22, 2011 an F-5 tornado devastated Joplin, Missouri. In the midst of overwhelming loss, staff of the The Joplin Globe began reporting for work minutes after the twister struck. Deadline In Disaster shows how these dedicated journalists continued to report every story, every obituary and every miracle—big and small. Local film directors Beth Pike and Steve Hudnell worked with the Missouri Press Association to capture their story. Filmmakers will be on hand to discuss the recovery process after the screenings in Columbia and Ashland.
