Quinn Seeks Federal Assistance For Storm Victims In 15 Counties


Governor Pat Quinn has requested federal disaster assistance for 15 Illinois counties hard hit by this month’s deadly tornadoes. 

 

Quinn says FEMA teams identified more than 2,400 homes in those counties that were damaged by the storms… more than 700 of which were destroyed.  If federal aid is provided, residents and businesses would be eligible to apply for grants or low-interest loans to help with recovery efforts.

 

Forecasters now say 24 tornadoes struck the state on November 17th.  That includes the EF-4 that demolished hundreds of homes in the town of Washington.  That is believed to be the most powerful tornado to strike in Illinois since record-keeping began.
