    It's indescribable the devastation shown in these photos. I knew tornadoes could be horrid, but I don't think I ever realized exactly what a tornado can do...there is NOTHING left of this town. It's been obliterated.

    Mind boggling, isn't it? Every tree is bare of leaves and all but the sturdiest branches; some buildings have been wiped out right down to the foundation; vehicles on their sides; what looks like a downed water tower, and every building heavily damaged. I hope to never experience a tornado first hand.

    The weather here can be fairly extreme, but that's just pure heat - thankfully we get nothing that even remotely compares with that. I'm more surprised that only 8 (last figure I heard) were killed looking at that, they must have been the only people in town that day.

    It looks like a drier version of New Orleans, tbh

    Kind of looks like a kid got vexed and ruined his toothpick city.

    How sad - especially for the residents, I can't imagine ones life changing so quickly
