Joplin Tornado before and after – I am glad we only have gales here.

The New Yorks Times has an amazing interactive page featuring before and after panoramic images from Joplin, Missouri which show the unbelievable devastation caused by the tornado that ripped through there last week.

The two images below are a grab from the interactive selection and it is hard to believe that the death toll was not many times higher :

In the after image you can see the nearest street sign folded flat against the pavement and the telegraph pole snapped off a few feet from the floor, not to mention the obliteration of all visible buildings and trees.

Seeing that makes you feel slightly guilty for complaining about British weather I think.
