Greensburg Tornado Damage Assessment

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this disaster. As a demonstration of the power of high resolution imagery, NCDC performed a damage assessment using pre-event 1-meter NAIP imagery and post-event 2-foot QuickBird imagery.

You can click on the image above for a closer look. As you can see, the tornado ripped through Greensburg destroying over 80% of the standing structures.

Kiowa County is one of our clients for E911 Base Map Development in 2007. We will continue to support the recovery efforts.
