" Jane and I are keeping the victims of the storms in southwest Ohio in our thoughts and prayers. Having just toured the damage in Moscow, Ohio and met with first responders, families affected and local officials, my heart goes out to the victims' families and the communities that have been devastated by the storms. I commend the Red Cross, fire, police and others who have stepped forward to help.
"My office will help as much as we can to ensure that the affected areas have the federal resources to recover and rebuild."
Ohio Congresswoman Jean Schmidt released the following statement on the deadly storms:
The devastation I witnessed Saturday while touring the Ohio River village of Moscow and nearby areas was disheartening. The loss of three lives in Clermont County, including one resident of Moscow, is a tragedy. My prayers go out to the families and friends of all who lost loved ones, as well as those who lost their homes and treasured possessions.
While the damage is nearly overwhelming, residents of Moscow have rebuilt before after tornados and floods. I have begun discussions with village, township, county, and state officials about how the federal government can help.
