Reading Citizens Cope With Tornado Damage

Residents in eastern Kansas are clearing debris today (MON) after a series of storms brought tornadoes and damaging winds Saturday night. One tornado heavily damaged much of the small town of Reading (RED-ing), about 50 miles south of Topeka. KPR’s Stephen Koranda has more on the twister, which left one man dead and many of the town's 250 residents homeless.

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer (CALL-yur), will tour Reading (RED-ing) later this (MON) morning and meet with local leaders and residents. Representatives from the Kansas Congressional Delegation -- as well as members of the governor's cabinet -- will join them for the tour, which begins at 9:00am.
