Jerry Moran Visits Reading to View Tornado Damage

Officials toured tornado-ravaged Reading (RED-ing) this (MON) morning. Kansas Senator Jerry Moran said the level of destruction left behind by Saturday's storm is profound.

A 53-year-old resident, Don Chesmore, died from injuries he suffered when his mobile home flipped-over. Reading's water tower was also damaged, so at the moment... city water is unavailable. The Kansas Department of Transportation says Kansas Highway 170 through Reading has been shut down until further notice. The governor, lieutenant governor and several cabinet members also toured Reading earlier today (MON).
