well with a estimated EF4 tornado taring apart Joplin Mo leaving 90 dead, I wounder if this wig-wag survived http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 4,,0,-3.02

I speak my mind, if you don't like that oh well. I'll have you fill out a hurt feelings report and submit that to my office.

From the Joplin newspaper website, I did a little bit of research. It appears the wig wag was a bit north of where the main damage occurred, so it might have survived. We will just have to wait and see I guess.
I drew a very crude map of the tornado's path below.

Keep in mind, the tornado was almost a mile wide and is now confirmed to have been an EF5. Hate to say it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the wigwag got shredded just like everything else in the area.
