New Flurry of Twisters in Greensburg Kansas
GREENSBURG, Kan. -- A fresh wave of tornadoes ripped through the Plains late Saturday, a day after a tornado all but destroyed this town, killing eight and injuring dozens more.
The National Weather Service said it had received reports "well into the double digits" of twisters touching down in six southwest Kansas counties. Numerous tornadoes were reported from South Dakota south into Oklahoma as forecasters scrambled to keep issuing warnings.
The new storms forced rescuers to abandon search efforts Saturday in southwest Kansas, where crews had spent the day hurrying through the wreckage from Friday night's giant tornado. That twister left little standing in Greensburg beyond the local pub.
Friday's weather was blamed for nine deaths in Kansas, a figure authorities feared could rise even before the latest twisters.
City Administrator Steve Hewitt estimated 95 percent of the town of 1,500 was destroyed and predicted rescue efforts could take days as survivors could be trapped in basements and under rubble.
Among the only structures that survived was the Bar H Tavern, the town's lone bar. It was briefly converted into a morgue.
Survivors picked over the remnants of their homes and possessions, still dazed by the twister's strength and scope.
