Quinn: Central Illinois needs FEMA help
“A number of those communities were hit by the flooding in the Spring, and then the tornadoes in November and now the weather disaster with the snow and the very cold weather this month and I would hope that FEMA will see those special circumstances to help us get the federal money.”
FEMA said infrastructure damage after the storms wasn't severe enough to warrant federal help.
At least seven people were killed statewide and hundreds of homes and businesses destroyed.
