WEST LIBERTY, Ky. (AP) — A new 3,400-pound clock tower has been placed atop the old Morgan County Courthouse in West Liberty, more than a year and a half after tornadoes devastated the town.
The Lexington Herald-Leader says the copper-covered clock tower was built in Campbellsville and designed to resemble the one damaged March 2, 2012.
Twenty-five people died throughout Kentucky in the outbreak of tornadoes that hit several Kentucky counties, damaging or destroying thousands of homes and businesses. Six people died in Morgan County, and damage estimates there reached about $250 million.
