The Greensburg Tornado

in 2007 95% of Greensburg Kansas was destroyed in the middle of the night by a category EF5, mile and a half wide tornado. The biggest recorded in history.

We passed through Greensburg. It’s really cool to see how through the will and determination of the people in Greensburg they have been able to rebuild it into a really amazing town reliant on green energy. There are still some amazing reminders of the tornado left as a contrast of what they went through and where they are now.
