Reading open for business

Business is back and living is good in Reading, Kansas, and the town held the second annual Business Stroll on Saturday to show it all off.

Rhonda Sapp says the event is a way to advertise local business and draw people to the community. She added they have come a long way since the May 2011 tornado that destroyed most of the structures in town.

Mayor Kevin Sorensen says the recovery work is just about done.

The EF3 tornado that hit Reading was about three blocks wide and destroyed at least 56 of 110 homes and 14 of 21 businesses.
