Can This Tomato Plant Be Saved?

I am at a loss and in mourning over the impending death of this tomato plant.  It suffered extreme duress after being beaten severely by storms (heavy rain and hail) a couple of weeks ago.  I have tried to revive it by pinching off the dead leaves and adding more growing medium to the container up and around the stem.  Watered lightly since I was told it got too wet.  I just don't know if it will survive.  Before the storm it was looking really nice.  I wish I had moved to a protected area before the storm; but regretfully I did not.

If an experience gardener can provide input, please advise if I should continue trying to revive this plant, or give up.
