Tornado Debris Piles Remain In 2 Southern Indiana Towns

Last updated on Saturday, February 16, 2013

(HENRYVILLE) - Two southern Indiana towns hit last year by tornadoes are still marred with damaged buildings and debris piles nearly a year after the deadly tornado outbreak.

Henryville and Marysville and surrounding areas still have 23 buildings that were battered by the March 2, 2012, storms that killed 14 southern Indiana residents.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky. reports that Clark County building inspector Tony Semones told county commissioners Thursday night that a dozen large storm debris piles also remain on private properties in the tornado-ravaged areas.

The commissioners suggested that Semones speak personally with each property owner before sending them notices informing them that they 30 days to remove the debris before citations are issued.

The county has posted notices saying it will stop picking up storm debris in June.
