West Palm Beach, FL – May 7, 2007 – While driving from Jefferson City, MO to St. Louis to catch a flight, 2008 Presidential Candidate Daniel Imperato learned of the recent tragedies in Kansas.
“First of all, my deepest condolences go out to those affected and the families of those affected from the devastating tornados this weekend in Kansas,” stated Imperato.
Over the weekend, an F-5 tornado ripped through Greensburg, Kansas, the most powerful tornado possible.
The Kansas Emergency Management Agency confirmed the weekend storms that whipped through the state claimed at least 11 victims.
“I want all of the victims and their families, to know that they are in my hearts and in my prayers. I hope that all those affected now feel the power of the support and prayers from Americans around the country.”
The National Weather Service says the tornado that leveled 95% of Greensburg cut a 22-mile track, 1.7 miles wide. Its winds were clocked at about 205 miles per hour.
“My message to the people of Greenburg is to stay strong. America will be there to help rebuild your homes, your businesses, and your city.”
Imperato also felt that the government now has an opportunity to show how much it has learned since America’s last great natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina.
“Now is the time for our government to step up. They should have learned their lessons from Katrina and should now have the experience to effectively manage this situation.”
The last tornado of this magnitude was the Oklahoma City F-5 Tornado of May 3, 1999, which claimed 36 lives.
