This article discusses the use of a spatial video and a new Tornado Injury Scale in Joplin, Missouri. Results reveal fine-scale damage patterns even within the main tornado path, often with variations occurring along the same street segment. The number of elderly fatalities was significantly higher than for other cohorts. This finding is consistent within neighborhoods and not just as a result of single-site losses, as has been found in other disasters. Spatial video footage is also reinvestigated after the analysis for damage trends by building type and physical setting, with a summary of these observations provided in the discussion
