FEMA Denies Tornado Aid for Local Governments



The Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied a request for aid to local governments in Illinois after deadly tornadoes swept the state in November.
 
FEMA sent a letter on Thursday to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency saying that damage after the storms wasn't severe enough to warrant federal help for local governments to make up for cleanup costs.

This decision does not affect the $11 million dollars in aid already approved for individual residents and business.
