On March 2, 2012, the town of West Liberty, Morgan County, Kentucky suffered a massive tragedy. An F3 tornado ripped through this community of about 3,400 residents, killing six, devastating nearly 400 homes, businesses and government structures, and destroying much of the downtown area. This disaster followed an F2 tornado on February 29, 2012 that caused property damage but no loss of life.

Since the storm, the debris has been cleaned up and the town has taken stock of its damage. A key issue is that a number of residents and businesses have yet to decide if they will rebuild their homes and businesses in the town, or relocate elsewhere. This disaster offers the opportunity for West Liberty to examine the path it was on pre-disaster and imagine how this could be changed to pursue new opportunities: the challenge facing residents of West Liberty is how to rebuild their town.
