New beginnings for BG tornado victims: children overjoyed with new homes

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Regis Oconnor Blvd. Last June, that patch of land just outside of downtown BG was just grass.

But now, after months of hard work from Habitat for Humanity and generous donations from local and statewide agencies, Regis Oconnor Blvd means ‘home’ to six families.

Each set of families is a first-time homeowner. Half of them are here after losing their homes to the deadly December 2021 tornado.

No one’s excitement could rival that of the kids – each one jumping at the chance to show off their new house.
