Temperature and precipitation are related to climate in how they affect it. Areas with very high temperatures and low precipitation, like deserts, are considered arid.
A squall is a wind-driven storm that is accompanied by a large amount of precipitation in a short time, over a small area. Microbursts are similar, but are the result of sinking air in an existing thunderstorm. They can feature precipitation in a small area, or they can be dry, tornado-like wind gusts.

A single event cannot be attributed to global warming, only overall trends can. Violent tornadoes will occur and devastate communities with or without climate change and Missouri is no stranger to such storms. Tornadoes have occurred that were probably stronger than the Joplin tornado but just did not strike major population centers and so passed without as much notice. An event like the Joplin tornado was ultimately inevitable simply by matters of chance.
before a tornado it is usally calm after a strong tornado there is lots of debris and during a tornado there are things flying everywhere
The Joplin tornado of May 22, 2011 was utterly devastating. Due to confusion with an earlier warning and the tornado being shrouded in heavy rain, may did not realize it was coming until it was too late. The tornado left a damage path 22 miles long (include 7 miles in Joplin) and nearly a mile wide. The tornado left 158 people dead, more than 1,000 injured, and thousands without homes. Some bodies were torn apart by the force of the debris-laden winds. Those who survived recount a terrifying experience, and many will have to deal with the trauma for years.
