Senator Thad Cochran tours Winston Medical Center

U. S. Senator Thad Cochran made a follow-up visit to Winston County on Tuesday, May 27 to tour storm damaged areas. Cochran met with local elected officials and community leaders for a closed briefing on the activities and clean-up progress following the April 28 tornado that ravaged the County and City of Louisville.

 Cochran toured the temporary Winston County Medical Center, residential areas along Eiland Avenue and a poultry farm between Louisville and Noxapater. Senator Cochran, along with other members of the state’s Washington delegation, toured the area hours after the event that left 10 persons dead in the county and destroyed or heavily damaged hundreds of homes and businesses.
