SALISBURY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Rather than the community being upset that a tornado ripped through their hometown, they decided to ban together and do something about it.

For the second day in a row, Saturday, hundreds of volunteers showed up to help those impacted by the EF-2 tornado in White Horse and Salisbury Township. They finished cleaning up debris and began rebuilding.

Millwood Road was hit the hardest. There barns, a house and chicken coops were destroyed. Now, new foundations have been set and walls are going up. Almost all of the work has been done by volunteers.

The storm did cause about 8 million dollars in damage according to Lancaster Emergency Management.  A tornado relief fund has been created by the Mennonite Disaster Service in Lititz.
