Oklahoma Tornado: Before and After
What happens when a tornado hits? Ultra-high-resolution imagery collected for Xactware from storm-battered Moore, Okla., provides an unprecedented level of detail about the damage inflicted by the May 20 tornado. Xactware documented the Oklahoma City area only month’s before for its Geomni Property nationwide library of high-resolution aerial images. After the storm, Xactware was in the air again, and captured these images just days after the event.
