Gov. Brownback: 97 tornadoes in Kansas

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback tells CNN he is amazed there are no fatalities in Kansas after tornadoes swept through the state.
"Ninety-seven tornadoes touched down at various times throughout the state. About 40 percent of the state at one time or another had a tornado warning. But people heeded it, no fatalities that we know of as of now. There is quite a bit of damage. But god was merciful. It looks like we had made it through the initial look without a fatality."
