Anniversary of the Greensburg Tornado

1 min read

Today is the 14th anniversary of the Greensburg Tornado. The F-5 storm was 1.7 miles wide and, as it moved north, it was nearly perfectly aligned with the 1.7 mile wide town. Ninety-five percent of the buildings of the town — 961 businesses and homes — were damaged or destroyed. The total destruction of block after block was stunning.

The town has made a comeback as the “world’s greenest community.” You can see the history of the tornado along with the replacement to its quirky “world’s largest hand-dug well” if you visit the town.

I highly recommend the museum and salute the residents of the town on their recovery.
