FEMA money starting to make its way here

CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Disaster victims are getting help from FEMA.
CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Disaster victims are getting help from FEMA. Weeks after the tornado hit, victims have gotten $958,000 so far.

FEMA says it expects more, but there have been a lot of misconceptions. One of the biggest it that victims have to repay the money. FEMA says it's not true; the money comes from grants.

Leaders encourage people to register before time runs out. FEMA says many people hit here were covered by homeowners' insurance. They're waiting for those claims to come through so benefits aren't duplicated.
