School nearly leveled by tornadoes prepares to reopen

July 18, 2012 (HENRYVILLE, Ind.)

A construction crew of more than 300 has been working around the clock to rebuild Henryville High School.

Last March, a series of tornadoes rolled through the town leaving the school in shambles.

The new building features several energy efficient upgrades, including solar panels on the roof.

The price tag for the project is at $51 million and counting. Almost all of it has been paid by insurance.
