MADISONVILLE-There will likely be some type of aid to uninsured storm victims who suffered
damage when high winds swept through parts of the county Thursday night.
Monroe County Emergency Management Agency Director Brian Turpin said he
has turned in a damage report to the state and was told of the possible aid coming in a phone call
with state officials Monday. Turpin said if the aid is approved, there will likely be a station
set up in Madisonville where storm victims can file claims.
National Weather Service in Morristown determined a storm packing up to 110-mph winds, not a
tornado, lashed the Madisonville area Thursday night.
As the City
of Madisonville and the surrounding area cleans up and comes back from the storm that blew through
Thursday, recently appointed Mayor Glenn Moser said he wanted to thank everyone who helped in the
"I would like to thank the Red Cross, TEMA and the
First United Methodist Church for use of their building," Moser said, "in response to the latest
storm that hit Madisonville and the outer boundaries."
