Greensburg, Kansas – After the storm

The tornado that stuck this small farming town in Kansas was a Category EF-5, 1.7-miles wide with winds estimated around 205 mph.

(Tornadoes are usually categorized by wind speed based on the Fujita Tornado Intensity Scale, with F-5 referring to the most powerful storms. The “EF,” or “Enhanced Fujita” scale, measures the severity of a tornado based on damage rather than wind speed.)

I don’t think there is anything to say but to just let the pictures speak for themself.
