In only a matter of hours, a historic tornado outbreak leaves behind a trail of destruction.

Just three days later after an EF 3 tornado devastated the small town of West Liberty and Morgan County, the rebuilding of this community is slowly beginning and its starting with the businesses.

On Monday some business owners got their first look at the damage.

Friday's tornado tore off the roof of the West Liberty Christian Church.

The pastor is saving what he can, and keeping his head up and thoughts for the future.

Other business owners are not so lucky, they can't salvage anything because it is to dangerous to go inside.

Many are amazed at the powerful aftermath of this tornado, yet somehow even though the building is basically gone, some things are still in the exact place as they were before the tornado hit.

Even with a little snow, work continues in West Liberty.

Dozens of power polls have been replaced and some power lines have been strung.

There is still a lot of work, yet people are looking forward ready to rebuild.
