Joplin: Before and After

NPR posted overhead views of Joplin, Missouri before the tornado hit Sunday, and two days after the devastation. You can move a slider over the pictures to compare the two. Be warned, it's sad. -via Bits and Pieces

What Maleia said! The hurricane thing reminds me of Katrina in that New Orleans (big tourist city) got all the attention and funding, but several little towns on the Gulf coast were completely obliterated -- and got no attention.

Every place, no matter how small, is somebody's home.

As someone living extremely close to the devastation, I just want to thank you for your coverage. Joplin will rebuild and be better than ever, and people from all over are helping our efforts thanks to social media, blogging, etc. The internet has been an incredible resource. Thank you.
