As Storm Tracker Brandon Copic and his team arrived in Greenfield, they encountered a grim situation with numerous individuals injured and trapped in debris, indicating the severity of the disaster that caught many residents off guard.

Witnessing burning wind turbines and homes reduced to rubble, Bender asked Copic about any spared areas in Greenfield, to which Copic responded that the tornado had relentlessly ripped through the town’s center, leaving widespread destruction.
