(WICHITA, Kan.) — Saturday's tornado moved through Reading, Kansas around 9:15pm, not long after the EF3 tornado destroyed most of the city, a Facebook page emerged.
And in forty-eight hours more than one-thousand people joined the "Reading tornado" group, with posts offering condolences, searching for friends and sharing stories.
But personal stories aren't the only things being shared. Wichita's Red Cross says and the Salvation Army tell us social media is a vital source used to get information to the public.
A spokesperson for Red Cross says their agency has been on Twitter constantly since the storm broke out in an attempt to relay correct information to people and weed the wrong out.
