On Sunday, April 28, a category F5 tornado cut an east-west path through La Plata, Maryland, killing 5 and injuring more than 100. These two images show a 6-by-17.8-kilometer (3.7-by-11.1-mile) area centered on the town. The top image was acquired on May 12, 2001, and the bottom on May 3, 2002. The bands 3-2-1 used for the image portray vegetation in red, and bare fields and urban areas in blue-green. The dark turquoise swath cutting across the 2002 image is the track of the tornado, where the vegetation was ripped up and removed.
