Almost One Year After The Good Friday Tornado

In Bridgeton, Missouri, residents on Beaverton Court are still recovering a year after the Good Friday Tornadoes of 2011 leveled the neighborhood.

Things are looking much better on Good Friday 2012.  But, the rebuilding effort has not been perfect.  A year after the sirens sounded, rebuilding is not complete.

Bommarito Automotive SkyFOX captured Beaverton Court after the storm hit.  There were splinters, 2x4s, pipes, insulation, but no homes left.  Neighbors started rebuilding immediately.

SkyFOX got pictures of the same street almost a year later.  Almost every home is rebuilt.  Almost.  Some residents are reportedly fighting with their insurance companies for coverage.  It is possible if the homes cannot be repaired, the City of Bridgeton may take the homes.
