MapBox has released its JavaScript code for the public to use in visualizing the recent Moore tornado impact. Simply slide your mouse over the area in the map below.

Exerpt from mapbox blog – “Thanks to open aerial imagery provided by the U.S. Government and our MapBox.js javascript library, we can now see — in stunning high resolution — the impact of Monday’s tornado on the city of Moore, Oklahoma. Using the latest aerial photography captured by the Department of Homeland Security in support of the Moore Tornado recovery and response efforts, and released with an open license, and our MapBox Satellite global mosaic baselayer, with aerial photography down to zoom level 19, we created a before and after map revealing the impact of the Moore Tornado.
