Rescue crews in Greensburg, Kan., continue to search for victims of a devastating tornado that struck the town Friday, killing at least nine.

Many expect the number of casualties to grow, as rescuers ply through the wreckage, and some residents say the town itself will likely be among the victims.

Frank Morris of member station KCUR reports on the destruction of the 1,500-resident town, where only a few buildings remain standing.
