FEMA Denies Washington, IL Aid

Posted: Updated:


Although the 9 Illinois counties affected by the deadly November tornadoes will not receive the federal aid they requested from FEMA, the mayor of one of the hardest hit areas is confident his community will get help to recover.

Hundreds of homes were destroyed and 7 people died but FEMA sent a letter to Illinois emergency management notifying reps no aid was coming since the damage was not severe enough.
The mayor of Washington, Illinois says the tornado left his city with $6-million in damage and clean up costs but remains positive the city will get back to normal.
