NOAA/NWS 1925 Tri-State Tornado Web Site--Photographs
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the Tri-State Tornado is no exception. Even though there are no known photographs of the actual storm itself, one glance at the damage in the photographs gives one a chilling sense of the horror that the survivors endured.
This collection of photos comes from the Jackson County Historical Society in Murphysboro, Illinois. Most of the pictures in this gallery depict the damage scene in Murphysboro proper.
