Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help citizens keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: A list of federal disaster declarations due to occurrences such as tornadoes.

Why you'd want them: To learn more about how weather and other natural disasters have affected communities across the country.

Where you get the records: From the Federal Emergency Management's website, www.fema.gov/news /disasters.fema. You may search by year or state. You also may search by type of disaster.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
