This symbol has been seen before. It has deep connotations to those who’ve ever experienced it first hand.
As search and rescue teams made their way around the path of the tornado, buildings and even cars were marked to show that they have been properly inspected. Each section represents a different meaning; the top being the date, left is the team designation, right is hazardous materials. The bottom is reserved for a number that we all hope to see as zero, being persons found.
It’s surprisingly hard for me to write about a lot of these photos. I’ve tried my best to convey a certain feeling thru them, but the words of sympathy sometimes seem hollow.
