Addressing Interconnections Between the Built and Natural Environments Through Post-event Damage Surveys

Jacksonville, AL Aerial Photographs

On 19 March 2018, a tornado struck the town of Jacksonville, AL. The National Weather Service assigned a maximum rating of EF3 to the tornado and found a track length of over 34 miles with a maximum path width of 1900 yards. On April 5, the UNC Asheville/UGA/UIUC research group, supported by NOAA grant funds, chartered a flight to collect high-resolution aerial photographs collected via three passes along the entire damage track. The interactive map below shows the approximate central location of each photograph. Click on each yellow circle to see a thumbnail of each image and click on the thumbnail to see the full low-resolution JPEG image. High-resolution TIFF and RAW imagery is also available by request. Here is an example of a portion of a high-resolution image.
