Delmont Tornado Aftermath

We participated in a clean up effort in the tornado-ravaged town of Delmont, SD. Only a few days previous on Mother’s Day, a category EF2 tornado completely destroyed half of the already tiny town. In the way only a tornado can do, the havoc was complete. One of the only salvageable items we saw was a photo album cast in the mud. Photographs—they’re the only things that remain to remind us of what once was. It strikes us as a miracle that no one was killed, because, from the looks of it, everyone in the path of this twister should not have survived due to the sheer scale of the destruction wrought there. We will donate all our footage to the town for their historical society.
