Residents in Henryville go through the wreckage the day after tornadoes swept through their town.

Many Hoosiers in Southern Indiana are beginning to clean up after tornadoes hit towns all around the region on March 2. As state officials assess damage and prepare to apply for federal assistance to fund the recovery process, homeowners are wondering what will happen next.

Those seeking assistance or wanting to volunteer can find more information on our resource page.

    I was hit by the May 25th tornado last year and I must say that the recovery process is a long one. We have worked it continually yet have a long way to go. With the mild weather, I have had people at my greenhouse all week looking for plants. If they haven’t been here before, the first they say is: what happened here? Did you get hit by a tornado? And that is 9 months after the fact and after nine months of rebuilding and cleanup.
