Tornado Damage, Allen, Texas 4-10-08
On this day in 2008, I had been covering extensive tornado damage in Plano, Texas for the local paper when a neighbor mentioned there had been another tornado touch-down in Allen.
When I heard ground zero had been this particular landing strip, I immediately called my clients that lived on the property to make sure they were OK – and then headed out to document the scene.
An F1 tornado scrubbed this small grass landing strip of all hangars and planes in a very short amount of time, scattering the debris over a quarter mile. The neighboring developments accrued substantial roof, wall and fence damage in the process.
