Shot these images with my very first camera, a Canon Rebel G film SLR and a roll of Ilford SFX 200 a day after the tornado hit Siren, Wisconsin on June 18, 2001. I went to Siren from St. Paul, MN. hours after touch down. Law enforcement officers blocked entry to the city for safety reasons, live wire was all over roads. I had to return home but then after news cleared that entry was being permitted, I drover again the next day.

It was a long tracked F3 tornado that killed 3 people and left more than $10M damage behind.
