Small town residents meet to talk about how to recover from storm
LIVINGSTON - At a meeting Thursday night, residents of the town of Livingston met to discuss ways for residents to receive assistance following Tuesday's tornadoes.
At least 30 structures in the small town received heavy damage from the storm. Mayor Derral Jones called the meeting to connect people in need with those that wanted to help.
"Obviously I don't have the magic wand to wave around and make all the problems go away, but there are things the city can do, and we want to make sure we do them," he told News 2.
Residents impacted by the storm were thankful for the meeting, saying they don't know what they would have done otherwise.
"I'm here to get assistance because my trailer had been messed up by the tornado," Lonnie L. Taylor says. "It was pretty bad, pretty bad."
