This is an amazing look at the power of the Joplin MO tornado, one of so many that are making this the worst year in history for storm damage in the USA. Open this New York Times link to see the before and after scene in Joplin.
Use the two control bars– the one to the right zooms in (for close-ups on neighborhoods) and out (for a bird’s-eye view of the swath of destruction through the city)… and the bar in the middle to scroll left and right, showing the before (left) and after (right) view. Amazing!
Add a prayer for those who’ve suffered through this disaster.
