FEMA Turns Down Illiniois Request For Aid After Tornadoes

FEMA

Yesterday we told you that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied an appeal by Indiana for aid to six counties after tornadoes in November.

Now FEMA has also denied a request for aid to local governments in Illinois.

Millions have already been approved for residents and businesses.

FEMA says that damage after the storms wasn't severe enough to warrant federal help.

The storms left at least 7 people dead statewide and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses.

Gov. Pat Quinn says the state will appeal the decision.

The counties turned down are Champaign, Douglas, Grundy, Massac, Tazewell, Vermilion, Washington, Wayne and Woodford.
