"Having lived in Charlotte, NC virtually my entire life, I have never seen this kind of devastation so close to home except for Hurricane Hugo but then I don't remember seeing flattened homes. I wanted a record of this for myself so I went and shot the aerial photos on March 6th 2012. It missed my house by less than a 1/2 mile. The tornado came through on Saturday March 3 around 2:30 am. We are told that winds reached to 130+ mph and destroyed close to 200 homes. No fatalities. Amazing. These photos will show just how close some came to losing so much and how others lost way too much..."
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent tornado!
