Remembering Tornado Victims One Year Later

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of severe weather which took the lives of many Kentuckians and caused millions of dollars in structural damage.  The March second, 2012 tornadoes caused vast devastation with the bulk of the damage in communities like West Liberty, Salyersville, East Bernstadt, and Piner.  Statewide, 25 people were killed and more than 45 hundred homes impacted.  671 of those houses were destroyed.

  Nearly 30 million dollars was recently awarded to help Morgan County rebuild.  Governor Beshear is encouraging Kentuckians to observe a moment of silence Saturday at six p.m.  That’s around the time some of the worst storms moved through the state.
