Posted: Updated:

WEST LIBERTY, KY (WAVE) – After losing almost everything to the March 2012 tornados one Eastern Kentucky town is close to celebrating a rebirth.

Construction on a brand new West Liberty Elementary School is nearly complete and school officials are expecting students to return by the start of the new year.

The original school was one of nearly 1,000 structures destroyed by two tornadoes last year. Crews are putting the final touches on classrooms, the gym and library.

Class is expected to begin January 6 after the student's winter break.
