Caption: Tornado damage. Remains of an American town hit by an EF5 tornado. This sweet machine was the only thing left standing in the gift shop of the world's largest hand-dug well, Greensburg's primary tourist attraction. The town was obliterated by winds in excess of 200 miles an hour as a 1.75 mile (2.7 kilometre) wide twister struck the community on 4th May 2007. This was the first EF5 tornado recorded in the United States since the National Weather Service switched to the Enhanced Fujita (EF) scale on 1st February 2007. EF5 is the highest level on this scale. Photographed in Greensburg, Kansas, USA, on 11th May 2007.
