Tornadoes devastate Kansas

President Bush has declared parts of Kansas a disaster area freeing up federal money for recovery efforts after a weekend of devastating tornadoes.

This morning residents of one town that was destroyed will be allowed back to their homes for the first time since May 4, 2007.

In fact, 95 percent of Greensburg is no more. Ten people died in the storm, including eight in the Greensburg area.

"The whole community is gone. The infrastructure of every bank, every business, everybody's home is just gone," said Kathleen Sebelius, Kansas governor.

Officials will be checking IDS and making a list of missing people. Meanwhile, FEMA is setting up support services for the hundreds of families now left homeless.
