Oklahoma is getting a check to help with recent storm damage from friends thousands of miles away.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Taiwan presented a $20,000 check to Governor Fallin to help with some of the cost of tornadoes in April and May.

During a ceremony in the Governor’s Large Conference Room, Fallin thanked the Taiwanese visitors for their generosity.

“For your friendship once again in helping Oklahomans during a time of need during a time of crisis that we have suffered with the recent storms that have come through Oklahoma.”

The storms killed 13 people and caused an estimated $10 million in damage.

Oklahoma and Taiwan became sister states in 1980 and that partnership was extended during a ceremony with then-Governor Brad Henry last year.
