Road Trip 2011: Tuscaloosa Tornado

July 5th, 2011 (09:12 pm)

On the way to New Orleans recently, we stopped for lunch in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and then drove through the part of town that a tornado had ravaged a month or so earlier. It's hard to convey the devastation in a few pictures; the thing that surprised me the most was the enormity of the destruction. Here are some of my photos. I took these from a moving car (no, I was not driving) so the quality isn't always as high as I would have liked.

This was just one small segment of a nearly two-week road trip through parts of about a dozen states. I'll be posting photos from other stages of the journey sometime soon.
