(WICHITA, Kan.) — As the April 14th storm took aim on the Wichita area, Teresa Burks and her family took cover. The tornado missed their house, but some of their neighbors near Kellogg and Greenwich were not so lucky. Now, three months later, some places are still a mess--a dangerous mess according to Burks.
"It's a danger for the kids in the neighborhood to be around and playing," Burks says. "It also provides habitat for wild and stray animals."
There's an upside down mobile home nearby and another house missing the roof and most the walls.
Burks says it's obvious why some people haven't cleaned up and made repairs.
"It sounds like the big reason is money," Burks says. "They apparently were not properly insured to have debris removed from their property."
But she says somebody needs to do something, and three months is long enough to wait.
We contacted the City of Wichita to see what, if anything, the city is doing about the situation. A spokesperson says city staff members are looking into it.
