CLOVERDALE — A little over four months ago, a tornado ripped through the heart of Cloverdale and while it damaged over half the houses and some community buildings, the heart of the 168 villagers has proven its strength.

On Nov. 17, 2013, Cloverdale sat in the path of an EF-2 tornado. In its wake, 14 homes and St. Barbara’s Catholic Church were demolished after being deemed a total loss. More demolitions are pending as insurance companies work with homeowners.
