Easter egg hunt a sign of hope in tornado-damaged West Liberty

WEST LIBERTY — In most towns this time of year, there's nothing unusual about scores of children gleefully searching a field for Easter eggs. But this is Morgan County, where a tornado killed six people March 2 and largely destroyed West Liberty, the county seat. Old Mill Park, where the annual Easter egg hunt is held, was damaged by the storm and filled with debris from the hillside across the Licking River. And an unknown number of local children were displaced to live with family or friends in other counties after losing their homes.
