Victims of the destructive tornado can now hand in applications to receive a share of the donations.

The total of donations reached more than €1 million. A designated committee will evaluate the claims over the coming months and determine who will benefit from the donations, the mayor of Petange and Käerjeng said this Friday.

The committee comprises representatives of the municipalities, social offices and aid organisations.

The donations are meant to cover damage not paid for by insurance companies and the Ministry of Family Affairs. Personal injuries are prioritised over material damage. 31 homes remain uninhabitable in the two municipalities.

Application forms can be found on the websites of the municipalities.
