This thread is looking more at the local angle, so I thought I'd add here that CNN is currently saying reports indicate the High School at Henryville is "Just gone" and a line of ambulances seen headed that way. This was a school day...but what are the school hours in that area of Indiana? Anyone know? Would it have been likely the kids already left school when this hit? School times seem to vary so much anymore I just don't know... I hope that school wasn't full of kids if the initial reports they're carrying now are accurate about damage.... Geeze...
Update on local damage....CNN is now showing live footage of the damage at Henryville...and ..well.. My God.. It's Joplin or worse. I'm thinking I'll be real busy with volunteer stuff at the college over the coming weeks... Relief efforts will probably start almost immediately.edit on 2-3-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
(RNN) – An entire Indiana town may be gone after a tornado ravaged the area in the latest severe storm to strike Friday. The Associated Press reported that the town of Marysville is "completely gone," according to Clark County Sheriff's Department Maj. Chuck Adams. Southern Indiana was walloped by a tornado and authorities are reporting extensive and widespread damage in Henryville, IN, about 20 miles north of Louisville, KY.
A substantial, possible multiple vortex tornado was on the ground near Henryville around 3:30 ET Friday. Affiliate WAVE 3 is reporting one person has died there. Source
