Devastation Before Dawn – Images

Students from Southern Illinois University School of Journalism arrived quickly in Harrisburg and Ridgway to report on the devastation caused by the F-4 tornado that struck on Leap Day.  They returned to the area to record stories and capture images during the days and weeks that followed.   The hard work and dedication by these students led to the creation of the book, 4:56 AM: The Story of the February 29, 2012 Tornado. Following are images from that book (click on photo to enlarge):
