Henryville working to clean up town

Posted: Updated:

HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Snow began to fall in Henryville late Sunday night, as people picked up the pieces from Friday's tornado.

The scene in Henryville still looks like war zone. Families who lost their homes continued to dig through the rubble looking for anything that could be saved. 

The New Albany Salvation Army team is working with Texas Roadhouse in Clarksville, IN to provide hot meals to those in need.

"You've been working all day, you don't want no cold sandwich," said Steve McCormick. "You want a hot meal."

Organizations like Samaritan's Purse based out of North Carolina were also in town Sunday providing disaster relief to those who need it.

Daniel O'Shea caught the tornado tearing through the town he grew up in.

"I never thought it would happen to Henryville," said O'Shea.

Down the street, Darrell Basham's racing business was destroyed.

"It looks like God took a big weed eater and cut everything out," said Basham.

Basham was surrounded by family and friends who helped him salvage anything that they could find.

By the end of the day, he found his American flags and placed it back on the skeletal remains of his business.
