Tornado Damage Near New Hartford

The attached photos are from the tornado that went through the Beaver Hills Addition of New Hartford, Iowa May 25, 2008.

New Hartford is 8.0 miles East of Parkersburg, Iowa and 18 miles Northwest of Waterloo, Iowa. The Beaver Hills Addition is North of downtown New Hartford. On the map it is the area around Deer Trail Drive by Trapper Road (County Highway T-55) and Beaver Valley Street (County Highway C-67).

I can confirm that one of the two and probably both of the fatalities in New Hartford were in this area.

One of my 7th grade buddies(Austin Gerloff) lost his home during the tornado and that got me thinking about tornados. I have a question I have been wanting to know forever! What is the worst tornado the US has recorded so far? And I want details!
