SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Sullivan city and county officials held a meeting Tuesday with residents from areas affected from the tornado.
With a chance of rain and wind moving through Tuesday and Wednesday, leaders encouraged residents to look through their valuables and arrange a safe place to stay this evening.
The Salvation Army and American Red Cross are still running the assistance center out of Abundant Grace Church. There, they can help with a place to sleep and meals.
Sullivan County EMA director as well as the mayor of the City of Sullivan discussed the ongoing relief efforts with residents.
“And we’re going to fight every single day. From the city to the county to the statehouse to the Whitehouse,” Lamb said. “Every single day we’re going to fight for every opportunity, every resource because our community needs help. And it’s not just a community. It’s not a label. We aren’t statistics on a piece of paper. It’s these folks right here. Amen. Do you need some help,” Lamb asked.
The crowd cheered and yelled yes.
“We need some help, and we need it from you,” Lamb said.
