If you're a regular reader of The Wizard of Odds, you know about the plight of Parkersburg, Iowa, a football town that was devastated by a tornado Sunday. Thursday, Iowa governor and former Hokie football player Chet Culver toured Parkersburg and attended a prayer service there.

The damage to the town has been estimated at $6 million. Click here for information on how to help the town of Parkersburg.

“It has been five days since this deadly tornado struck our state, and the state of Iowa has rallied behind these communities that have been devastated by Sunday’s severe weather,” Culver said through a media release. “These communities may be damaged, but they are not destroyed. I have the utmost confidence that the homes, businesses and schools that have been affected will be rebuilt, and our state will be stronger than ever.”
