Aumsville tornado damage estimated at $1.1 million

SALEM, Ore. (AP) Marion County estimates damage from the Dec. 14 tornado that struck Aumsville at $1.1 million.

The county emergency manager, John Vanderzanden, told The Statesman Journal that includes residential and commercial property and public infrastructure.

The figure could go up as agencies send in more damage reports, but Vanderzanden says he doubts the city will qualify for a state and federal disaster declaration. The threshold to qualify is at least $950,000 in damage to public infrastructure.

The twister damaged 50 homes. No one was killed.
