(WAVY) – Congressman Scott Rigell said first responders are doing everything they can to help those who were injured in severe storms Thursday.

Rep. Rigell said he was expecting a final assessment in a few hours.

“I absolutely will be there, and it’s just a special part of our district. I need to ensure to the extent I can, with the resources I can, that the first responders and families have all we can provide at this time,” he said.

Rigell said that dealing with this situation was a top priority for him.
