Rep. Scott Rigell tours Eastern Shore tornado damage

EASTERN SHORE, Va. (WAVY) — Congressman Scott Rigell toured the Eastern Shore Friday afternoon after an EF-1 tornado killed two people at Cherrystone Campground Thursday morning.

Rigell said he’s working with local leaders to make sure victims have what they need to recover.

“We first go local, then to the state level, then we assess the overall situation and what funds if any are available at the federal level. They have a strong advocate here not only in me but every person who has the privilege of representing this area,” he said.
