Tornados Ravage Kansas

Both CNN and ABC News are reporting on the recovery efforts after tornados ripped through towns from Texas and Oklahoma to Kansas. Nine people were killed on Friday night in Kansas, and more than 50 people were injured. As a result, President Bush declared southwest Kansas as a major disaster area.

The ABC News article includes the information that National Guard engineers were assigned to help with search and rescue. The tornado that leveled the small towns was an F-5, the most powerful category on the scale of the National Weather Service.
