The people of Greensburg are breathing a sigh of relief this morning as only minor damage was reported from a twister that touched the edges of town. Just over a year ago, the entire area was devastated by a massive tornado that almost took Greensburg off the map. In response, Leonardo DiCaprio hooked up with Planet Green to transform the town into what he called “the sustainable city of the future” — nothing but green from the bottom up. The entire process is been documented for the upcoming series Greensburg.

Thankfully, the rebuilding process can continue without having to start from scratch — but it was pretty close. “The funnel cloud went directly over the top of Greensburg,” said Ray Stegman, Kiowa County emergency preparedness manager. According to ABC News, the tornado hopped from the western edge to the eastern edge of town Friday.

Yikes.

You can check out the rebuilding of Greensburg starting June 4th on Planet Green.
