Comments

I chose this for a few reasons. First, I briefly lived in Forth Smith and it's interesting to see what the city looked like before and after the tornado. The second reason I chose it is that although you often see photographs and postcards of the aftermath of natural disasters, you rarely see full booklets dedicated to showing the aftermath of a storm. - Danyelle McNeill
