LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) -

A town hall meeting was held in the town of Livingston Thursday night for all the residents who were impacted by the tornado or storm damage. 

The goal of the meeting was to find out the most pressing needs for the victims from Tuesday's storms. 

Town of Livingston Mayor Derral Jones said fixing the problem wouldn't happen overnight but the town would do all it can to help. Officials said that they did not have donation locations set up at the time. 

"It is our duty to do everything we can do. Obviously I don't have a magic wand to wave around and make all the problems go away, but there are things the city can do and we want to make sure we do them," Jones said. 

The meeting started at 7 p.m. at Livingston Town Hall located at 20550 Circle Drive.

Anyone who did not attend Thursday night's meeting can go to the town hall for help.
