Oregon Tornado Year Later
In this Dec. 14, 2010 photo, T. G. Nichol Plumbing of Aumsville, Ore. is filled with debris, insulation, bits of trees and roofing paper after being whipped around by the wind when a tornado hit. A year after a tornado with winds of up to 120 mph ripped through the Willamette Valley town of Aumsville, residents say the town is recovering but there's still work to do. The storm on Dec. 14, 2010, damaged 75 structures in the town of 3,700 people and left 10 houses uninhabitable. A prominent building housing the Nichol family's plumbing business was destroyed. But only two minor injuries were reported. (AP Photo/Statesman-Journal, Danielle Peterson)
