HHS bus barn restored after 2013 tornado

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Another portion of the Hattiesburg High School campus that was affected by the February 2013 tornado has been restored.

Work on the school's bus barn was completed and reopened last week. The new facility has a new office building that includes a conference room.

A window has also been installed where people go to obtain bus passes.

The rebuilt barn now has two bays allowing employees to work on more buses at one time.

Many buses were damaged or destroyed during the tornado and have since been fixed or replaced.

Cost of the project was $847,000.
