You can click on these links and follow the track of the tornado county by county and see a bird's eye view of the damage out of the KTHV helicopter. It is pretty amazing video. On Pope County it took me a while to get oriented until I could spot Lake Atkins and then they fly over it and stay on the destruction path. Just thought some of you might like to see it kind of firsthand.

I was watching that this morning and following where the storm went on google earth. You can see what the area looked like before the storm and it really shows you the distruction. :eek: I did a bunch of clean-up help after the March 1st tornados in '97 so I know what it's like being there. Pictures don't do it justice!

Very true!! I was in Atkins yesterday (got a flat b/c I ran over a nail somewhere) and the damage was so sad!! I mean a woman on the news really got me thinking... I mean look at all the papers, check books, bank statements, sentmentals, ect. A person would never know all they lost!!!

You're right! No way to tell. :frown: I saw on the news last night that the tornado that hit Atkins, Clinton, ect was on the ground for approximately 120 miles!! That is incredible! A check, or credit card, or just about anything for that matter could be carried that entire distance. There is no way of telling where your stuff would land.

And sometimes we don't even thing about this...http://www.katv.com/news/stories/0208/494261.html

Man can you imagine?? I mean the poultry farms will have had Insurance on houses/birds/ect. But when a twister takes 200 head of cattle which I would bet not one was insured your talking serious losses. Like bad enough to lose your place losses. If them cattle were how you paid your bills!! I feel for all the farmers as my folks are farmers. It really hits home how fortunate we are and have been.
