Schoolhouse Beat

Domed facility will be part of rebuilt Mississippi school campus

Video from WTVA-TV: The Monroe County (Miss.) district is rebuilding school facilities on its Smithville campus that were destroyed by a powerful tornado in 2011. The replacement gymnasium is a domed structure that will double as a storm shelter--it is being built to withstand an EF-5 category tornado--the same category as the one that struck the town in 2011.
