Losing everything in a tornado really does mean you lose everything. Yet, it is the littlest item that ends up being the most important. For example,  who even thinks about their driver’s license when their house is gone?

The RMV took this into account. They have just announced that as part of their effort to assist in this disaster, residents affected by the recent storms who lost their driver’s licenses or Massachusetts IDs can apply for a free duplicate by visiting a Registry of Motor Vehicles office.
