Its quite unfortunate that the tornado hit this town the way it did. There are some excellent pics of the damage the tornado did to this town on this site(and several photo albums are accessible from the front page of this newspaper's site, I found it pretty interesting to look at):

Good to hear your family are ok. I am searching for Duane Shank and his family. They are on the Red Cross list as OK. I will go to Greensburg this Wed morning to find Duane and assist. Any info appreciated!

Unhappy Tornado victims are welcome to move to Arizona

I feel sad for the tornado victims. If any of them would like to move to Arizona to rebuild their lives, they would be welcome here. Arizona gets hot weather but the hot weather is just an inconvenience, and it doesn't destroy your life an property.

Post Greensburg

My thoughts are with all of the people of Greensburg. The damage photos are just terrible. It just goes to prove what a solid structure that grain elevator was! This is a rural area and I know all the people there are helping others out.

I told my Mom to ask my Aunt about this name if she calls again. She may know where they ended up-if so, I will post it!

The unfortunite disaster that took place in Greensburg is the worst ever in that town's history. It was unusual and unfortunetly happened to a wonderful town I pray the people will recover and the US will not repeat the Katrina error on the town of Greensburg.
