Leak forces new evacuation

Parts of Greensburg had to be evacuated again today even as residents were allowed in to retrieve belongings. Rescuers were working to shore up a slight leak on a 30,000-gallon rail car carrying anhydrous ammonia, a tank damaged in the tornado, said David Sternbenz, an official with the Topeka Fire Department.
