Pompeo Statement on Severe Weather Damage in Kansas

WICHITA, KSKansas Fourth District Congressman Mike Pompeo issued the following statement regarding the damaging storm system that moved through south central Kansas late Saturday night:

“Our team is working with local and state emergency management officials to assess the damage in the wake of the tornado that struck Sumner, Harper, Sedgwick and Butler counties.  We know of significant damage across south central Kansas, and statewide from a dangerous line of severe storms.  We will do all that we can to make sure that all needed federal resources are available at the earliest possible time.

"Susan and I want to extend our thoughts and prayers to all Kansans who are dealing with the aftermath of tonight's storms.  We are so thankful for the service of our first responders who are working to assist in the aftermath of this event.  We want everyone in Kansas' Fourth District to know that our team is ready and willing to assist in any way we are able."
