TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An aide to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback says he and Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins will visit Baxter Springs to view tornado damage in the southeast Kansas town. Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley said Brownback and Jenkins were flying to the area Monday afternoon in a Kansas Army National Guard helicopter. Jenkins represents the 2nd Congressional District, which includes the state's southeast corner. Authorities said that a storm Sunday night left 25 people in Baxter Springs injured and damaged more than 100 homes and businesses. They said the tornado was two miles long and two blocks wide.
