President Barack Obama signs a disaster declaration for 15 Illinois counties hit hard by last week's tornadoes including two in our area. Wabash County and Wayne County were among the counties to receive federal aid for storm damage.

The aid includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs, along with low-cost loans for uninsured property losses. Federal Emergency Management is continuing damage surveys, meaning other counties could receive federal assistance.
