Kansas Tuesday: Tornadoes, floods, struggle

By Diane Silver

Up here in northeastern Kansas, we dodged the tornadoes that did such horrendous damage in Greensburg, but it is wet, wet, wet.

A good friend of mine had ankle deep water in her basement in Topeka and an inaccessible laundry room. My 100-year old house with its unfinished, limestone basement is a bit damp in the basement, but I don't have any major problems yet. I'm one of the lucky ones.

May the sun keep shining today!

The Lawrence Journal-World highlights the rising waters.

The Topeka Capital-Journal covers evacuations inside the city limits.

As always, the best coverage from Greensburg is at The Wichita Eagle.

Let me know if you're having problems or know of anyone who is struggling.
