Lt. Governor Tours Storm Damage

3/13/2012

Lt. Governor Becky Skillman toured southern Indiana to get a look at the tornado damage Tuesday.

Listen:

Skillman says she viewed the damage both by air and on the ground and said the damage was quite stunning. However, she said she wasn't surprised by the residents' reactions when she spoke to them.

"As predicted, every resident I talked to pointed to someone else who was in greater need and that was regardless of their loss and often that loss was significant," Skillman says.

Skillman says she must have spoken with volunteers from every state in the country who came to southern Indiana to help out.

Skillman says she also visited the relief headquarters in Sellersburg and spoke with all of the state agencies that have set up shop there. She says the state is still doing assessments to possibly get more federal assistance in the future.
