FEMA crews are canvassing the parts of central Illinois hit hard during the deadly tornado outbreak last month.

They're offering information, identifying needs and helping survivors register for disaster assistance.

Nearly 75 crew members are stopping by homes, business and other high-traffic locations in affected areas.

Residents should be certain to ask for federal identification before providing person information.

Federal and state officials always have an official FEMA badge.
