From WTOL TV: Deadly tornadoes on June 5 and 6 destroyed the high school and the police department in Lake Township, Ohio, and many residents hoped the federal government would assist the area financially. But rejected the disaster declaration because it did not find enough devastation, according to Deputy Fire Chief Mike Hornyak.
Now first responders are most in need of the money FEMA denied. For example, the Lake Township Fire Department has already used more than 75% of its 2010 budget because of the storm.
"Towards the end of the year we're probably going to have to do some cutbacks on training and equipment purchases," Hornyak said.
