Tornados Hit Already Devastated Area in Kansas

Greensburg, KS (AP) -- A fresh wave of tornadoes has ripped through Southwest Kansas, a day after a tornado all but destroyed the town of Greensburg, killing nine and injuring dozens more.

The National Weather service says it's received reports "well into the double digits" of twisters touching down in six counties.

Among them were a series of half-mile wide "wedge" tornadoes, similar to the one that devastated Greensburg last night.

A meteorologist says: "we're going to expect quite a lot of damage."

Earlier, emergency crews called off the search in Greensburg for victims as the weather deteriorated again.

Rescuers had spent the day hurrying through the wreckage from last night's giant tornado, which left little standing beyond the local pub.
