Joplin Before And After (photo)

It is among the most chilling tornado images I’ve ever seen.

The Los Angeles Times (sister publication of my TV station and the Hartford Courant) originally published this “Before-and-After” from Joplin, Missouri. It is produced from Google Earth and other satellite imagery. It is among the most chilling tornado images I’ve ever seen!

  1. Suddenly our winter pales by comparison. And to think their destruction/heartbreak all happens in less than 15 minutes.

  2. I’ve seen this kind of devastation in small towns in Alabama (used to live there). We’re talking a MAJOR southern city with Joplin.

    I’d bet similar pictures came out of Tuscalosa, AL as well.

    I’m not going to complain about SOCAL earthquakes ever again…

  3. I couldn’t begin to imagine what those people are going through. My donation to the Red Cross is going out tonight.

  4. Hey, when I clicked on the like button, a picture of Donald Trump came up with the correct link. What’s up with that?

  5. what is amazing, besides the devastation, is that the roads, are, for the most part, passable. Everything was picked up and blown away. Where did it land? It had to go SOMEWHERE<<??
