Quinn Requests Federal Disaster Money

SPRINGFIELD (WIFR) -- Quinn requested President Obama declare several counties including Stephenson, Winnebago, Jo Davies and Ogle County a disaster area.

This would make federal grant and loan money available for losses related to the storms. Quinn’s office says nine homes were destroyed and nearly 450 homes had major damage.

FEMA was in Freeport today to continue damage assessments.
