Death by Tornado!

Cruising through the back country of Arkansas today and came across this poor creature near the town of Dalark in an area recently damaged by tornadoes.

Not much left, but you should have seen the farm down the road!!

Those are amazing photos! What a tragedy to that poor airstream-Let's hope no one was inside.

Nooooooo!

Man, I'm so glad I live where there aren't any tornados. I'll take earthquakes any day.

I hope every one is Ok, and that it wasn't anyone we knew

Nobody was around, and the town was pretty beat up, so I didn't feel much like scavenging, but it is easy to find. Right on HWY 7 approx 14 mi SE of Arkadelphia, AR

Uhmm....
I believe this is still someone's personal property.
This is not an invitation to start looting.
Hopefully I am just missing the intended humor.
