On Monday, Walker said a number of state agencies beyond emergency management have responded to those counties.
"From the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Children and Family, Department of Transportation, other state agencies seeking to assist the folks who were hit not only by the tornado, but by the other wind damage in the area," said Walker.
In order to qualify for a federal declaration of emergency, a certain threshold needs to be met.
The Governor says typically the federal government only considers cases that go above and beyond damage covered by insurance. In this case, it likely won't happen because many people have home insurance.
"One of the things we've been encouraging people to do is to document any damage done to their property and then pass that on to county officials," said Walker.
