Pile of debris

In this July 21, 2011 file photo, a worker walks among a pile of debris at a landfill in Galena, Kan., where some of the 2 million cubic yards of tornado debris have been hauled from nearby Joplin, Mo. Debris cleanup accounted for about one-fifth of the $500 million in tax dollars spent after an EF-5 tornado destroyed a large swath of Joplin last year. The tornado that tore through Joplin a year ago and already ranks as the deadliest twister in six decades, now is considered the costliest since at least 1950. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel, File)
