KS Congressman Tours Storm-Damaged Town of Reading

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran was one of the first officials to tour the tornado-damaged town of Reading early this (MON) morning. The Lyon County community, located about 20 miles northeast of Emporia, was hit by an E-F-3 tornado Saturday night.

One resident -- 53-year-old Don Chesmore -- was killed in the storm. A Kansas City TV station is sponsoring a telethon tonight (MON) to help raise money for the tornado victims in Reading and in Joplin, Missouri. NBC Action News will raise money from 5 to 7 o'clock. (To donate, call: 816-932-HELP.)
