On Monday, Kilgore’s emergency management coordinators began their detailed study to property damage following Thursday’s vicious early morning storm. Kilgore PD Sgt. Terry Linder and Kilgore FD’s Michael Stanley will be reaching out to homeowners to get detailed estimates on which houses are salvageable and which ones aren’t, says Kilgore City Manager Josh Selleck.
