UPDATE, SAT, 6:00 AM: We have a Newswatch update to a story we brought you about a woman and her four children, still homeless seven-months after a deadly tornado destroyed their home.
In May, Tracy Meier's neighbors contacted Newswatch. They wanted to know why the rubble hadn't been cleared from her Warrick County property - and what they could do about it. They said the area was an eyesore and safety hazard.
Newswatch contacted Tracy, and shortly after the story aired, calls to volunteer time and equipment poured in.
The very next morning, contractor Steven Young began organizing a crew to tear down the still-standing portion of Tracy's home.
But according to Tracy's brother, Brendan Meier, not much progress has been made with the clean-up.
And Steven Young told us last week, there's some ambiguity with liability issues and the contractors are still waiting for the 'go ahead' from city officials to bring in heavy equipment.
But they haven't given up yet.
If you'd like to volunteer your time or supplies, please call (812) 306-8362 or (812) 897-6748.
Previously: After the November 2005 tornado, communities pulled together with donations and supplies to help those who lost so much. But what happens when a family loses everything, then falls through the cracks?
A Warrick County mother and her four children are homeless, even now - more than six months after the storm. They lost everything but the clothes on their backs, and now, they need your help.
