Kentucky and Southern Indiana Tornadoes Remembered

Three years ago today, a tornado with 170 mile per hour winds tore into buildings, homes and land in Henryville, Ind.

The tornado was part of a system that produced devastating weather in the Midwest and South, killing more than 30 people. West Liberty, Kentucky, was destroyed by a tornado.

Among the programs and projects that were created in the wake of the storms, was the website March 2 Recovery Stories, which is dedicated to "victims, survivors, heroes, communities, businesses, animals, and all affected by the March 2, 2012 unprecedented severe weather outbreak across 49 miles that included an F4 tornado."

WFPL's Erica Peterson from coverage of the devastation can be found here.

A Kentucky statewide tornado drill had been scheduled for Tuesday, but the National Weather Service postponed it because of the threat this week of winter weather and flooding. The statewide tornado drill was rescheduled for March 10.
