Victims of November’s deadly tornadoes in Central Illinois no longer have a one stop-shop to go to for federal help. FEMA’s disaster recovery center in East Peoria closed over the weekend. 15-hundred people have used the center to register for help, and people can still register until early next month. The FEMA location helped victims jump through hoops and handle all of their needs at one location after two dozen tornadoes ripped through the state.
