Tornado-stricken town rebuilds with clean energy

The Big Well, in Greensburg, Kan., is described by the town as "a marvel of pioneer engineering." The hand-dug well, completed in 1888, is 109 feet deep and 32 feet in diameter. The town opened a new museum on the site to descend a spiral staircase into the Big Well and view exhibits that feature Greensburg's history, including the devastating 2007 tornado.
