On March 2, 2012 – a seemingly normal Friday – tornadoes tore through Southern Indiana and Kentucky, devastating communities and families.
In all, the death toll reached 22 in Kentucky, and 14 people died in Southern Indiana, including Henryville resident Lenora Hunter’s husband, Wayne. Determined to move forward, Lenora – who was seriously injured in the storm – rebuilt her home in the exact location where it had once stood. Today, Lenora is comforted that people still remember her husband and take the time to share their memories of him.
While the tornado outbreak wreaked havoc – and worse – for many, it also inspired many moments of courage, heroism and neighbors helping neighbors.
