Greensburg, Kansas Tornado Claims Another Life

Updated:
PRATT, Kan. (AP) _ The massive tornado that devastated the town of Greensburg nearly two weeks ago has claimed another life.

Harold Schmidt, 77, a resident of Greensburg, died Monday at Pratt Regional Medical Center of injuries he suffered in the tornado, the hospital said.

Nine other people died in Greensburg when the tornado struck on May 4, and the storm claimed two more lives in the nearby towns of Macksville and Hopewell, bringing the total number of fatalities to 12.

The tornado destroyed more than 90 percent of the buildings in Greensburg, a south-central Kansas town that had about 1,400 residents before the storm.
