Aftermath - Parkersburg Iowa

Uploaded by: AlteredStars

Friday May 30, 2008

Waterloo, IA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: These photos are the results of a tornado that tore through Parkersburg Iowa Memorial weekend. Over 300 homes leveled, and left 7 people dead in it's path. Photos can't begin to show the devastation. Seeing the damage makes a person's stomach turn. Even though residents lost so much they are all working together to salvage any personal items they can find. My friend’s grandparents home was leveled and it felt good to help what little I could by sifting through rubble saving anything that was still useable. After seeing this damage I will never again under estimate the power of Mother Nature.

My sincerest thanks goes out to Wunderground for having a site to post photographs. WDG Publishing stumbled across my 2008 flood photos and contacted me to send them my originals. Four of my phtotographs were published in the book "One Week in June". If it weren't for Wunderground this wouldn't have been possible. Thank You WG! I live in the Waterloo Iowa area. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, I work and play outdoors. I enjoy taking photographs of anything and everything, from beautiful to bizarre. Keep On Shooting!!!!
