HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Nine months after a tornado hit a southern Indiana town there are signs of progress and opportunities to be thankful.

Tuesday, some Henryville residents prepared to move back into a home of their own.

Anthony Nasby and his family of six will move into their new Habitat for Humanity home on Saturday. He said moving helps the season feel brighter, "Hadn't seemed like Christmas at all and then when we sign the papers Thursday to move in it will finally seem like Christmas then, and I think all the homeowners feel the same way."

Crews from South Bend, Lafayette, Fort Wayne and from as far away as Detroit and Des Moines worked to get the homes finished before Christmas.

All the homeowners moving in were required to pitch in 200 hours to help construct the homes.
