HENRYVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The true power of the March 2 tornado that came through Henryville was easily seen in what became one of the most iconic images of the entire disaster -- a school bus lodged in the front of a restaurant.

Budroe's Family Restaurant reopened for business once again on Monday morning.

Aside from the necessary changes needed to make it structurally stable again, the owner is changing the name of his family restaurant to Budroe's Bus Stop.

"This is the greatest little town there is," Sherman "Budroe" Sykes, owner of Budroe's Bus Stop, said. "These people that's lost everything, but you know they're still holding their head high, and they're walking around with a smile on their face, they've lost everything, its hard, but you know what? They ain't looking back, they're looking forward."

WHAS11's Michelle Arnold will be live at the restaurant during the evening newscasts.
