Pilger, NE: Before and After

This is interesting. You’ll remember that I showed a video of the tornado up in Pilger, shortly after it happened , here. Anyway, yesterday the £ Daily Mail ran some photographs taken from The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite. What’s interesting is that you can trace the paths of (both EF-4) tornadoes.

Here’s a before picture:


And the same view after:


There some difference in the vegetation which may or may not be connected with the storm (I don’t know) but the tornado tracks are as clear as day on this.

Here’s the town after:


There’s more and a video at the link.

Keep your head down when the sirens go off, this was bad, even for out here, and more are forecast in eastern Nebraska and Iowa today.

Remember the Joplin Tornado?

This showed up in my inbox today and I wanted to share it with you. If you remember, Joplin MO got hit last year with an EF-5 Tornado, which if you’re not familiar with the scale, is a huge tornado.

This video is from my brothers down at Empire Electric, and will tell you some of what it like during and after storms, and how we all feel when we get into one of these. So here it is from Empire Electric via Transmission and Distribution World.

This is Our Town is Empire

Thanks Guys (and Girls).
