My old neighborhood(s) got hit really hard.  It's like the tornado said, "let's wreak havoc on the poorest neighborhood we can find!" and then, it did.  The tornado then apparently picked someone up and threw him into my aunt's house, which no longer has a back side.  It's very unusual for a tornado to touch down and do that much damage in a dense area like that.

Here are some pictures.

This is going to be one hell of a summer.

Update: here are pictures of some of the damages around my aunt's house, courtesy of the Aunt Eileen mentioned in the comments:
