Sifting Through Tornado Photos

One of the many awful things about those extreme tornadoes in the South this week is that the storms literally scattered residents' memories to the winds.

Photos found after the Tuscaloosa tornado
this week
Close to 300 people died in the storms.

Many of the survivors lost everything, including treasured family photographs. Many pieces of homes in devastated Tuscaloosa, Alabama,  probably including photos and important papers, rained down from the sky as many as 60 miles away. The tornado was that powerful.

As a small way to help, and as a memorial of sorts, a Facebook page of found photographs from the tornado has appeared.

People who found the photos are scanning them and posting them on the page. Maybe some people will find the photos and claim them. It might help a little.
