HENRYVILLE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Representatives from FEMA toured tornado ravaged Henryville, Indiana Tuesday afternoon.

They were documenting all the damage from Friday's tornado.

Those documents will be compiled and help the Governor make a case for a Presidential damage declaration.

To qualify for federal disaster assistance, the state of Indiana must prove that up to 400 homes have been damaged.

The state is already aware of 300 homes that may qualify.
