Tornado kills one person and causes significant damage in Greensburg

GREENSBURG, Kan. — Rescuers pulled about 30 people from a partially collapsed hospital Saturday after a tornado ripped through this southwest Kansas community. At least one person was reported killed and dozens were injured.
The injuries of those who were trapped there were minor, said Sharon Watson, spokeswoman for the Kansas Adjutant General's Department.
The tornado struck Friday night, leaving a broad swath of destruction in the Kiowa County town about 110 miles west of Wichita. The storm front spawned tornadoes along a path stretching northeast from Greensburg through central Kansas.

A tornado that barreled through Arnett, Oklahoma was caught on video. It caused some damage, but no injuries. (May 5)
