MOSCOW, Ohio - Six months after a tornado ripped through Moscow, the southern Ohio river village still shows the impacts.
While there is a long way to go for recovery, there are encouraging signs. Houses are being rebuilt, roofs are being replaced, and an old iron bell is back into the steeple atop the Moscow Church of God.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/Oh11wo) that there also is an effort under way to replace the many trees that were blown down.
The Replant Moscow project is working with experts from the University of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Zoo.
Among the still-evident building damages, Moscow residents say the storm's legacy is noticeable with the trees missing. That makes wind storms more intense and also the sounds of the Ohio River traffic louder.
