    Un-freaking-real.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Aerial Photos of Tornados Path - Devastating...

    I want people to see what a nice town it was, but can't really see that from the air. Here is a satellite link to yahoo.
    The path of the tornado came right through the SW corner of town where HWY 14 bends from NS to EW.
    It flattened everything from Conn St to 4th Ave all through town and then everything south of the HS as it angled toward New Hartford. The south bank of lights is gone from the football stadium, but the north bank is still there so those 53+ yards between them made a huge difference. It also stayed north of the water tower.
    All the stuff between those areas is flattened, many, many other homes with extensive damage. What this also doesn't show is several homes that were up or being built on the new golf course on the East side of town.

    It is amazing looking at some of those pictures where stuff is just destroyed and not to far away houses still stand and look fairly undamaged.

    It's amazing to see the swirly patterns in the ground that show the tornadoes path.

    Re: Aerial Photos of Tornados Path - Devastating...

    I thought I heard that the tornado in Parkersburg reached a mile wide and the one in Greensburg, Kansas last year was as wide as two miles. Is that possible with a tornado? I guess if it completely levels a town the size of Greensburg (about 1500 people) it would have to cut a very wide path.

    I think the NWS officially put the one in P-burg down as .6-.7 miles wide, and then 1.2 miles wide in rural Dunkerton.
    I thought the one in Greensburg was a mile wide, but I could be mistaken.

    Re: Aerial Photos of Tornados Path - Devastating...

    It might have been a mile wide in Greensburg but I know they said winds of over 250mph, which made it even more powerful than the one in Parkersburg.

    Here's a great source of other photos and video from the Iowa State University/Iowa Environmental Mesonet. Simply amazing.
