Would this count? Destruction from Katrina, lakefront in New Orleans, a year and a half after the event.

The lighthouse at West End.

A FEMA trailer parked in front of my sister's house in River Ridge, west of New Orleans.

Thanks for your additions Fritz.  Yes, destruction photos are welcome.  Anytime you have severe weather, property damage will be an inevitability.

I have a number of photos somewhere from this tornado outbreak we had here in March, 2006.  The hail damage alone destroyed the roof on my home to where it had to be replaced.

That's exactly the thread I need right now!

Thanks for starting it, Charlie.
And the pics are fantastic - in spite of their threatening quality...

Holy shit!

Amazing photos!!! They look so unreal - and so scary!!!  :o
When I feel the warmth of your very soul
I forget I'm cold and crying
When your lips touch mine and I lose control
I forget I'm old and dying

From 1993, within an hours drive of my home; here are some shots of the infrastructure (roads and rails) damage from the waters as they started to recede in early August.
