"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..."
