Senator Thom Tillis touring areas recovering from Florence and Dorian today

Senator Thom Tillis will tour areas that are now recovering from both Hurricane Florence and Dorian today.

He will visit the filling station in Pollocksville, which is a community based outreach program that focuses on spiritual, nutritional and developmental needs in Jones County.

He will then head to the Boardwalk RV Park in Emerald Isle that was heavily damaged in a tornado Thursday morning. Police say a tornado went across the sound and then hit the mainland around 9:00 a.m.

About half of the 50 homes in the RV park were damaged.
