NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – March 2 is a day many in Kentuckiana will never forget.

Rebuilding has been ongoing for the last six months after devastating tornadoes.

The Floyd County Habitat for Humanity stepped up and raised the roof for Henryville. The organization will host a $1.7 million project that will bring more than 3,000 volunteers from across the state and the country.

Their goal is to help rebuild homes.

10 homes in total will be built in Henryville, in the Twin Oaks subdivision, another nine will be built in the Madison-Chelsea area.

Emily Hall who is helping with the project said, "I never thought I would be able to do something like this. this is an awesome opportunity. God gave us this opportunity and I'm very thankful for that and I know my husband is too."

Habitat affiliates from every major city in Indiana are supporting the project by donating supplies and trailers.
