It can be hard to picture what the neighborhoods of Joplin, MO looked like before a tornado came through and flattened pretty much everything. But this comparison shot using Google Street view makes the destruction painfully clear.
Missouri photographer Aaron Fuhrman went and tok a photo of the scene on a corner in Joplin, then compared it to a Street View shot from the same location. It's shocking, more shocking than the photos of destruction alone. A perfectly normal neighborhood, gone in a span of minutes. Terrifying.
