      Federal

      assessments of tornado-damaged property in Illinois


      are to begin Thursday.



      Gov. Pat Quinn's office says
      Federal Emergency Management Agency assessments are necessary so the state can request federal assistance.



      Five teams will look at damage to homes and businesses in Champaign, Grundy, Massac, Pope, Tazewell and Will counties. Sunday's tornadoes destroyed hundreds of homes and left six people dead in the state.



      The governor's office says
      federal and state emergency officials will meet with local government officials next month. That's when they'll find out how much money was spent on disaster-related expenses.
