Greensburg Tornado Update

The Pallasite Meteorite has been found in the rubble near the museum. The Big Well's website says it's half iron and half stone. It was on display at the museum at the Big Well. It was found on the Ellis Peck farm east of Greensburg by Mr. H.O. Stockwell of Hutchinson, using a device similar to a mine detector.

People were allowed back in today, but the NE quadrant has been evacuated again due to a leak of anhydrous ammonia.

There's word that President Bush may come to Greensburg later this week but it's not confirmed.

In other news, much of the state is flooded - especially hard hit are Topeka and Rice County.

Update: Bush will be in Greensburg on Wednesday.
