On March 2nd, 2012 an EF3 tornado struck a mighty blow to the heart of West Liberty, KY. Close to 90% of businesses and government offices took damage, with many being destroyed beyond repair. In the months to come there will be debris removal, building destruction as well as building construction, in West Liberty. Please use caution and be watchful of these diligent workers who are working very hard to restore our fair city.
