FAIRDALE, Ill. (AP) - A Missouri veteran who survived Hurricane Katrina has donated part of his vacation money to the victims of tornados that struck northern Illinois.

The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1KxLXI1 ) that 78-year-old Dan Moyle of Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, sent $250 for disaster relief. A tornado killed two people in the town of Fairdale on April 9.

Moyle says “it’s totally devastating” and he know it from experience. Moyle lived in New Orleans in 2005 when Katrina struck. He lost his trailer and other property.

Moyle planned to use the money to attend a reunion this summer. He says he hopes the best for the tornado victims in Illinois. He says he has “no idea the number of people that need help, but if there’s one, that’s one too many.”
