Harveyville still needs volunteers for assistance with cleanup, but officials are asking those who want to help to get in touch with them first, before coming to the Wabaunsee County town. Kansas Highway Patrol trooper Mark Engholm is the public information officer for the recovery effort:
KDOT says that the accelerated demolition and cleanup efforts have allowed Kansas Highway 195 through Harveyville to be reopened two days ahead of schedule. A memorial service for the man killed in the tornado, Richard Slade, is set for tomorrow (WED) at Mission Valley High School in Eskridge.
Volunteers are urged to call the United Way at 211 or to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
