State Rep Rebuilding After Tornado

(Perryville) Like the rest of the Missouri legislature, State Representative Rick Francis of Perryville is looking ahead to the special session of the legislature next week in Jefferson City. But that’s not the only thing that’s been on his mind this summer. Francis says the tornado that hit Perry County back in late April destroyed his home.

Francis says it didn’t take too long to realize just how bad the damage was.

Francis says they hope to have their home rebuilt and ready to move into by the end of the year. That tornado carried with it 85 mile per hour winds that uprooted trees and caused other damage. It was rated as an EF-0 tornado. Francis has served as state representative since 2016.
