Greensburg, a Town Reborn

On May 4, 2007 at 9:46pm, the town of Greensburg Kansas was devastated by an EF5 tornado (about 205mph.)  The twister was almost 2 miles wide and travelled nearly 22 miles before dissipating. The next day the town of 1400 found 11 people dead and countless more injured; 90% of their town was leveled and the majority of business’ laid in ruins. So what does a town do when it’s been destroyed?  Greensburg Kansas chose to become the first city in the U.S. to build green, with an eventual goal of becoming a sustainable community.
