Aerial photos of Washington, Illinois, show the heartbreaking scale of the destruction visited on the town after tornadoes touched down there Sunday night.

Eighty one separate twisters were reported across the Midwest. The devastating storm outbreak brought winds of up to 200mph that flattened hundreds of homes and killed six people.

Residents of Washington, a downstate town of 15,000, were left to pick up the pieces Monday and begin recovering from the disaster.

Bits of American flags and insulation from destroyed houses clung to trees that had been stripped of most of their branches and remaining leaves by the twister.

Police were keeping residents from returning to the storm-hit area, where buildings were destroyed and cars turned upside down, out of concern that people could be injured while attempting to retrieve possessions.

  1. who lived there and why did they want rid of them? ;)

    1. I lived there and no one wanted to get rid of us; we were all at our respective churches, none of which were hit. We wound up building newer, bigger, more modern homes after God was kind enough to clear our lots.

    1. Don't have any hints - sorry! Its just highly suspicious imo due to unusual ferocity of this storm ;) Reminds me of the Colorado fires somewhat.
      Is it some kind of payback for Philippines? Or is it just natural action/reaction? *shrugs shoulders*
