More money is on the way for Illinois communities devastated by last fall's tornadoes. Officials are making available more than $11 million dollars of state relief. Governor Pat Quinn announced the city of Washington is getting the majority of those funds. The community will use the money to repair streets and sidewalks. It's part of an overall package to help local governments recoup some of the costs associated with storm cleanup. That’s after the Federal Emergency Management Agency denied assistance.
