Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Gov. Pat Quinn's office says federal aid for Illinois tornado victims has topped $1 million. 

The governor's office says Wednesday that federal grants following the fatal Nov. 17 twisters have reached $1.06 million. 

The money is being used to help with disaster-related expenses, such as rent, repairs and replacing damaged items. 

About two dozen tornadoes crisscrossed Illinois during a single day last month and were blamed for killing seven people. 

Fifteen counties have federal disaster declarations from the severe weather.
