Picture of the Hugo tornado

We have what I believe is the first — possibly only — picture of the tornado that destroyed sections of Hugo almost two weeks ago.

According to The Citizen, Hugo’s community newspaper that’s already provided some of the best immediately-after images of the tragedy, the picture was taken by a 12 year old.

“The day after, [Shawn] showed it to me. He said, ‘Grandma, I got a picture of the tornado with my cell phone!’ and I said, ‘WHAT?’

“He was so excited. I told him it was kind of dangerous, but that he did a fantastic job.

Here’s the picture.

It’s quite possible, of course, that there’s another picture or two floating around that I was not aware of. If so, send along the link in the comments section.
