Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said he sent a text message to Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin offering Kansas’ help in the wake of the deadly tornado that tore through Moore, Okla., on Monday.

“This is horrific and we’re offering everything we can,” he said during a brief interview with reporters in the Statehouse on Tuesday.

Brownback urged Kansans to donate money and not drive down to the disaster area to help yet.

“There will be an organized process a little later on,” he said.
