MACKSVILLE, Kan. (AP) _ Kenneth Sewing just finished cleanup on
his property near St. John, where his house was destroyed by the
same twister that flattened Greensburg last year.

Now, he can be found helping clean up at the home of his sister, 65-year-old Anita Sewing.

She was injured in Friday's storm that converged on Edwards, Stafford and Pratt counties.

The Friday twisters that left two people dead near Pratt, damaged property and killed livestock, came within a mile of the path forged by the May 2007 Greensburg tornado. The storm system spawned at least 17 tornadoes across central and western Kansas on Friday, injuring at least six other people and damaging or destroying dozens of homes.

Anita Sewing suffered a broken wrist, a deep laceration on her leg and multiple glass cuts when the tornado hit her house west of Macksville.
