Tornado survivors: What help do you need on the path to recovery?

Months after the Memorial Day tornadoes tore through the Dayton region, thousands of people are still working to put their lives back together.  We want to make sure people are getting the help they need. 

That’s why the Dayton Daily News is asking those impacted by the storm to fill out a survey to assess the lasting impacts, and what survivors need for short-term and long-term recovery. The survey is below. 

Survivors needing to access resources can call United Way's 211 HelpLink line. 

We are also sending reporters Chris Stewart and Josh Sweigart -- joined at times by Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs -- to travel the length of the largest tornado. It tore a path all the way across Montgomery County. We want to hear people’s stories and gauge recovery. 

If you were impacted by the storm, please fill out the survey and share it with anyone else who was affected. 

We will assemble the results and share them with agencies, decision makers and the public to help guide response and recovery efforts.
