Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Yesterday, plenty of folks flying in and out of Colorado got an extended, close-up view of some tourist attractions that don't usually garner the attention they deserve: the restrooms at DIA. Yep, the area once known by locals as "Tornado Alley" played reluctant host to a twister that spared the airport but caused plenty of anxiety, as travelers were forced to hunker down in designated shelters (and often flushable) shelters. The craziness was captured on Twitter. Look below to see the top Twitpics from the experience, complete with credit info and details. Continue for more top Twitter pics of the tornado at DIA.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
