Working To Overcome The Impacts of Storm Damage

Instead of being at the House of Representatives on Wednesday, I was in our House District trying to help residents with their needs after severe storms left far-reaching damage.

The levee broke and flooded the town of Sayre, leaving the community center and other buildings and properties under water.

Also, a large tornado ripped through Kiowa and Washita counties about midnight Wednesday morning causing a lot of damage between Hobart, Rocky and Cordell.
