No federal aid for tornado damage

by

EAGLE, Wis (WSAU) The Waukesha County village of Eagle will not get federal disaster relief to cover the damage from last week’s tornado. Deputy Village Clerk Darlene Sterzinger says the community of 1700 does not have enough uninsured victims and public property damage to qualify. Six houses were destroyed. Sixteen others had major damage. And 100 others had at least some damage. The surrounding town of Eagle also had damage.

Old World Wisconsin, which is run by the State Historical Society, has been closed since the storm.

County officials say they’ll now try to get disaster relief from the state. Julianne Klimetz of the county executive’s office says there’s a good chance they’ll get state help, since preliminary damage estimates are above 20-million dollars.

Meanwhile, Eagle Fire Chief Justin Heim said the main emergency siren that did not work the night of the tornado has been fixed. He said faulty rotator parts have been replaced. Waukesha County dispatch records showed that Eagle’s siren had problems for the last few months. Heim said it was due to a battery problem – and it was fixed just before the night of the tornado on June 21st. Despite the lack of a siren, there were no serious injuries during the storm.
