KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Two weeks after a tornado killed two people in Cumberland County, Governor Bill Haslam has yet to tour the damage there, or in any other hard hit towns in East Tennessee.
He said the damage is too wide spread, but he'll continue to pressure FEMA for help.
Governor Haslam said, "Its very critical to the communities impacted so I mean, one of the things the Governor can do is continue to put pressure on the feds to come through for us."
Deputy governor Claude Ramsey already visited a number of the tornado sites.
