The Little Rock Tornadoes on Flickr, Youtube

Last week’s tornadoes ripped through central Arkansas, leaving tons of damage. While police and repair groups are still asking that folks not sight-see the damage, you can still get a pretty good idea of what happened via photo- and video-sharing services such as YouTube and Flickr:

All this of course is another example of how quickly the Web can respond to events with compelling user-generated content.

Oh — here’s a Wikipedia page on the tornadoes. A first draft of history.
