WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Roberts released the following statement today after learning of the tornado and extensive damage in Northeast Kansas:

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Reading and all those in Northeast Kansas who have been affected by this devastating storm. My staff has been in Reading all morning giving me a first-hand assessment of the significant damage.

“My utmost gratitude goes to all the emergency workers who have been tirelessly assisting those in need since the storm struck. It is always humbling to see the good people of our state come together to lend a hand in time of need. As the clean up continues, I will work closely with Governor Brownback to ensure every method of aid possible goes to help the people of these affected areas.”
