The numbers appear to show Kansas is seeing more disasters and that weather is doing more damage, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your life or property are in greater danger. More disasters were declared in Kansas from 2004 to 2013 than in the 50 years before, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear.

Data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency showed 29 disasters were declared in Kansas from 2004 to 2013, the last year included.
