Chilling: The Tornadoes' Paths As Viewed From Space

We've been putting videos of the devastatingly destructive force of the tornadoes that ripped through parts of the South in a post we began earlier today.

This compilation of satellite photos, put together by the NOAA-NASA GOES Project, is worth its own post. It shows the paths the storms took from Tuesday to today. We recommend clicking the "full screen" button at the bottom right of the video player:
