Millbury Ohio Tornado Pics?

A violent storm struck Millbury, Ohio, and killed seven people Saturday night.

Millbury, Ohio, is slightly east of Toledo and about 40 miles west of Ohio’s popular Cedar Point amusement park. The town was ravaged by a large thunderstorm with a funnel cloud that touched down. Seven people have been reported dead, but the numbers could increase with time.

I'm looking for high quality pictures of the Millbury Ohio Tornado, and so far pictures of the dundee michigan tornado have been posted online.
Does anyone know about a website that is posting pictures of the Millbury Ohio tornado?

I'm also looking for pictures of the tornado.
I heard a five-year-old child was among the dead in the small town of Millbury, Ohio, what a disaster.

Heavy storm winds were already raking Millbury when the main twister touched down at around 11:00 pm Saturday, destroying some 50 homes, businesses, and the roof and walls were ripped from the local high school, local officials said.

Storms collapsed a movie-theater roof in Illinois and ripped siding off a building at a Michigan nuclear plant, forcing a shutdown. But most of the worst was reserved for a 100-yard-wide, 7-mile-long strip southeast of Toledo now littered with wrecked vehicles, splintered wood and family possessions.

Tornadoes also touched down in several locations in central Illinois around Peoria, the National Weather Service said. Local media reported dozens of injuries and damaged buildings.

Police Chief Hummer flew over the tornado’s path where the majority of the damage was done, and it appeared that the funnel cloud tore open a seven-mile long path that is close to one hundred yards wide. No estimates have been given regarding the total value of property that has been damaged. Broken wood, wrecked cars, and fallen trees are spread throughout the town of Millbury.

Here's a video of the tornado aftermath in Millbury, Ohio.

Wow, the pictures.

The National Weather Service says Saturday's tornado was Ohio's strongest in eight years. Preliminary information indicates it rated a 3 on a 0-5 scale used to measure tornadoes, with 5 being most severe. Category 3 tornadoes have top winds of up to 165 mph.

Crews were working Monday morning to put up power lines to restore service to an estimated 1,000 customers. But the most devastated neighborhoods were quiet compared with Sunday, when hundreds of volunteers cleaned up debris.

You only had just seconds after the tornado sirens went off to get to the basement. Five minutes later, the storm was over.
The first thing you think is make sure your family is OK and as soon as the tornado was over, first thing I thought about doing was just making sure everybody else in the town was OK.

Millbury Tornado
The tornado was rated 4 out of 5 they changed it due to the width of destruction.
