Kansas | Sen. Roberts: Picturesque Kansas Prairie Reduced to Blackness and Dust

OFFICE OF SEN. PAT ROBERTS

U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts today [March 9] surveyed damage from historical and unprecedented wildfires in Southwest Kansas. “I met with Vice President Pence yesterday and briefed him on the unprecedented amount of destruction Kansans have suffered, especially our farmers and ranchers in Clark County,” Roberts said. “To see one of the most picturesque Kansas landscapes turn to black and dust is jolting.” Roberts mentions assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
