LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Two buildings in Laurel are about to get a much-anticipated makeover after being damaged almost four years ago during Hurricane Katrina.  

The city's Water Plant Number One Facility as well as one of the city's senior citizen's buildings are each scheduled for renovation. Both projects are going to cost more than $1.5 million with funding coming from the Federal Katrina Recovery Package.

City leaders said the administrative building's roof at the water plant was destroyed and the building was near collapse while the senior center had a tree fall on it, moving the foundation and causing water damage.
