HENRYVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Henryville, Indiana marks the one year anniversary on Saturday of the tornado that wiped out their town.
The deadly March 2nd twister brought 175 mile per hour winds to the small town. It smashed nearly everything in its path.
But signs of renewal are everywhere Henryville. Much of the rubble has been cleared. The high school has been rebuilt. And many families are rebuilding their lives.
The Salvation Army says 251 homes have been repaired and 11 homes have been rebuilt.
And countless lives have been changed forever.
Now, several events are planned tomorrow to thank volunteers and honor the progress made over the last 2 months.
A flag dedication was set for 1 p.m. Saturday at the New Washington Bank, followed by a parade at 1:30 at the Monroe Township Fire Department. A ceremony and family Fair is planned at Henryville High School beginning at 2:30 p.m.
