In May of 2008, a tornado ripped through the town of Hugo Minnesota, destroying several homes, causing a couple million dollars in damage and took the life of one small child. These images are from the Water’s Edge development; the area hardest hit by that tornado. I had access to the otherwise restricted area, and brought my company’s digital camera to take pictures and videos of the damage.
I was videotaping inside what had once been the 2nd story of a house that was sitting IN a pond about 50 feet behind where the house had originally been. The house itself was blown off its foundations, and had its first floor completely obliterated, with some pieces blown INTO nearby homes.
