Clean-Up Continues in La Crosse Following Friday Tornado

LA CROSSE, Kan. (AP) — Residents in La Crosse have been cleaning up this weekend from the batch of tornadoes that hit north-central Kansas late Friday. About four blocks in La Crosse sustained significant damage, and two businesses were destroyed. Officials said a third La Crosse business sustained major damage. No injuries were reported in La Crosse. One woman in nearby Russell had minor injuries. Rush County Emergency Preparedness Director James Fisher told The Hays Daily News that he attributed the overall lack of injuries to ample warning time and a slow-moving storm system. Sirens ran throughout the town for approximately 45 minutes. La Crosse resident Rodney Ruff lives near the town's car wash, which was hit. He said the area is a mess but it could have been much worse.
