The scar of the Minneapolis tornado

It’s been three four years and two weeks since a tornado ripped apart north Minneapolis and while there are still homes in need of repair, you might think that viewed from several thousand feet, you wouldn’t know a tornado dropped down on the city.

But that notion was dispelled when Reddit user AcerRubrum posted this image this afternoon on his/her flight into Minneapolis.

This appears to be looking southwest from roughly over the Shoreview, New Brighton area, probably from around 7,000 feet.

Which sent me scurrying to see if the tornado’s path was still visible in satellite photos.

It is.
