Former President Bill Clinton joined Governor Mike Beebe Sunday (May 4) as they toured the tornado damage left behind in Central Arkansas.

Clinton took the podium in Vilonia, where he said he’s astonished at how much work has been done in just a week’s time.  He also complimented FEMA, saying the agency has done an incredible job.

Clinton also said in a tweet that it’s inspiring to see neighbors working together to rebuild.  Beebe echoed that sentiment, saying with every heart-wrenching story, there’s a heart warming story as well.

President Barack Obama will visit Central Arkansas on Wednesday (May 7).
