Tornado survivors participate in support group

Posted:
KIRKLAND (WREX) - It's been over two months since the April tornadoes devastated parts of the stateline.  Survivors of the storm came together tonight to offer one another their support.

A family forum was held at the First Lutheran Church of Kirkland.  It was an opportunity for community members to share their experience with the storms and discuss different ways to help friends and neighbors in needs.   Organizers say many of the victims are still dealing with the aftermath of the storms. 

"Not only was the tornado and all the devastation traumatic, but now they're struggling to get their lives back together," says Paul Legler of the Dekalb County Center for Counseling.  "Do I rebuild, can I rebuild, where do I go next?"

The next forum will be held next month on Monday, July 20th at 5 p.m. at the First Lutheran Church of Kirkland.
