BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A group of WKU students spent their fall break not on a beach, but rebuilding an eastern Kentucky community devastated by tornadoes.
The WKU chapter of the Habitat for Humanity helped build homes in West Liberty.
The town has been in the process of recovering since March 2012, but one student who made the trip says the wrath of tornadoes can still be seen a year and a half later.
"There's still the devastation, and the reminder that there was a tornado. The people that live there don't really need that reminder, but everyone that comes through can still see that they're rebuilding. There's places where you can still see there used to be a gas station there, and you can see there's just a flat square. Just different things like that," said WKU student and Habitat for Humanity volunteer Kateri Rhodes.
Rhodes said 14 students helped rebuild five houses during the few days they were in West Liberty.
