Heroes Honored for Actions During Tornado

By Danielle Plogmann, Producer

IOWA CITY - People in Johnson County are receiving recognition for their life-saving actions during the April 13th tornado.

The tornado ripped apart many buildings, including St. Patrick's Catholic Church. More than 70 parishioners were at an evening service when the sirens went off, and they took shelter in a basement before the tornado hit.

Fathers Rudolph Juarez and Jerome Miller will receive awards for their lifesaving measures. So will Johnson County Emergency Management and communications officials.

The National Weather Service will give out the awards Friday.
