Tornado mapping

I know it is a bit late, but the tornadoes of this spring are getting mapped in different ways.

Here is a basic overview map that shows the locations of 670 different tornadoes from a single day.  But close up photos are what you need to see the real deal.  Here is an interactive map that maps out countless air photos from right after the tornadoes.  Just click on a box to download the individual high-res photos.  The shape formed by the boxes clearly illustrate the paths of the killer tornadoes while the closeups (like this one below) make it very easy to see the path wile zoomed out and the damage when zoomed in.

And one site has a frightening set of before and after photos.
