It shows, by the way, a tornado crossing the Arkansas River the last weekend of April 2014 on a track to kill more than a dozen people in Arkansas.
After that kind of devastation, it’s tough to get a handle on how bad the damage is or how widespread it is when your only point of reference is driving up to it on the ground. Most cities & law enforcement agencies do not have budgets for their own aircraft that could show them where resources might be needed first.
But drones may be about to change all of that. Watch this video from a drone near Highway 40 in Mayflower, Arkansas, after the tornado hit. Can’t you just imagine how this technology may someday help first responders? I sure can.
Thanks to@brianemfinger for sharing this important video with the rest of the world. As heartbreaking as it is, it shows us the possibilities on how drones can help!
