What's the status of Greensburg?

by GeneralTsao Online Now Sep 7, 2007 at 1:09 AM

About a week after the tornado, news stations ceased reporting on Greensburg. So what's going on there? Are the citizens returning?

I'd like an update, please.

Tom

    It looks like everyone is in temporary housing as the rebuilding gets underway

    There was an interesting series in the NY Times by their 'Frugal Traveller' doing an American road trip. Click this link travel.nytimes.com/2007/07/0... and watch the video for his report from Greensburg.

    Personally, I think it was a bit ghoulish for him to go rubbernecking around and I felt let down that he didn't see much else in Kansas (which, believe it or not, has more things to see than twisters).

    Greensburg is being rebuilt from the ground up. Many are volunteering their time and resources to rebuild the town. Plans have it to be one of the greenest towns in the US when finished. I know that students from the University of Kansas are helping out.
