Disaster photo library from FEMA

"The FEMA on line Photo Library contains more than 16,500 disaster related photographs made since 1989. The collection is composed almost entirely of declared disasters" but also includes FEMA response efforts, training exercises and Washington DC events.

"The photographs are of Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Floods, Typhoons, Fires, Avalanches, Ice Storms, Blizzards, World Trade Center and Pentagon Terrorist Attacks, Earthquakes, and the Columbia Space Shuttle Disaster."

Of the 14 photos for Arizona, only one is of an actual disaster [right, Wenden, AZ, 10/21/2000 -- This community was flooded twice in late October when waters from Centennial Wash swept into town. Photo courtesy of U.S. Small Business Administration]. The rest are of signing ceremonies or similar.

Thanks to Magma Cum Laude for pointing out this site.
