World Renew assessing tornado clean-up needs

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- A West Michigan organization went door to door Friday to find out what homeowners still need to recover from the July tornado.

Some homeowners are already making repairs, while others are still waiting for insurance to come through.

Teams from the World Renew organization went door to door in Wyoming, to see what needs still need to be met. The group has been helping residents in that area since the tornado went though. They've provided volunteers who helped clear trees and repairs to homes. Their latest efforts include going door to door, asking people to fill out applications if they still needed assistance.

"It goes to the long-term recovery organization in Wyoming," said World Renew's Bonnie Diekema. "They will prioritize these as far as need. Case workers will go through them and help the people when they can help them."

The World Renew organization does rapid response all over the United States.

The worst-hit areas here in West Michigan included Wyoming and Kentwood. The group goes door to door in Kentwood on Saturday.
