The Destruction of the Oklahoma Tornado As Seen by Google Maps

By Casey Chan on at

This is beyond sad. If you've been keeping up with the tornado that leveled Moore, Oklahoma, you probably saw the destruction it left behind. It looked like a movie set war zone or the aftermath of the apocalypse. But it was real. Google released satellite imagery showing what the destruction looked like from above. It's not pretty.
Google's Crisis Centre reveals the tornado's path, showing the damage outline and specific damage points. Some areas are so severely damaged it's almost unbelievable. In addition, Google revealed satellite imagery from April 29th, 2013 (before the tornado) and May 22nd, 2013 (after the tornado) to show us the before and after.
