Dexter Marks 1 Year Anniversary Of Tornado

Mar 15, 2013

It's been exactly one year since an F-3 tornado tore through the Village of Dexter, damaging some 400 homes, with 36 of those homes suffering major damage.

Dexter Village Assistant Manager Courtney Nichols says there 's still some repair work going on, specifically at the car wash and the laundromat.  She says most of the homes have been repaired or re-built. 

Nichols says it was very fortunate that the financial cost to the village was only $45,000, which mainly went to cover clean-up and tree removal service.
