Local Master Gardener Lyle Bickley (L) works with students at Mount Hope Middle School to replant trees destroyed by the 2011 tornadoes.
Disasters in Lawrence County prompted the construction of tornado shelters throughout the county. The Lawrence County Extension Office partners with the local Emergency Management Agency during times of disasters as well as disaster planning and preparation.
