Tri-State man back home after helping in Texas


A Tri State man is now back home from helping with recovery efforts in Texas.

Jeremy Koren spent the past two weeks in Victoria, Texas serving the Salvation Army in hurricane relief efforts.

Koren served as a planning chief for a three-county area affect by Hurricane Harvey.

"It really depends on the area that you are in, we served three counties and I kind of equate it to Adams, Brown and Pike County here in Illinois, and there were parts of the one county that were hit hard, and then you go maybe thirty minutes south and they were barely touched," said Koren.

Koren says relief efforts continue down south as another team has taken the place of his team.
