Henryville - Many of us have seen the damage from the tornado that struck Henryville, IN on March 2, 2012, including the destruction at the local Junior-Senior High School. But now, surveillance video shows the havoc as the twister actually hits.
School had just let out on the afternoon of March 2. The cameras at the school rolled as the storm struck the area. Teachers are seen hurrying students to safety just moments before the twister hit. From various angles, we can see what happens as the tornado, classified as an EF4, passes through the area.
"The amount of energy and destruction that took place in such a short amount of time really boggles the mind," Assistant Superintendent Dr. John Reed commented about his first look at the video.
The storm knocked out the south wall of the school gym, and the video also shows a roof being torn off as the students in faculty huddled inside in offices. The video was released by WAVE TV.
About 80 people were inside the building at the time. No serious injuries were reported.
