Luxembourg Prime Minister Promises Aid for Tornado Victims

Luxembourg Prime Minister Promises Aid for Tornado Victims

Sunday, 11 August 2019 02:37 PM

BERLIN (AP) — Luxembourg's prime minister has promised that financial aid will be available to help people who had homes damaged or destroyed by a rare tornado.

Luxembourg newspaper Tageblatt reported Sunday that tornado victims would soon be able to access application forms on a government website and quoted Prime Minister Xavier Bettel as saying, "We're ready to take on responsibility."

The Friday tornado injured 19 people. Tageblatt says one of the two with serious injuries suffered a heart attack and remained in critical condition.

Hundreds of firefighters, soldiers, police officers and volunteers were cleaning up debris left behind.

The newspaper said tornado-related damage has been reported at 314 buildings and around 80 homes are inhabitable.

Tornadoes are very unusual in Europe, where fierce gales that are more the norm also pose danger and cause damage.
