MANTACHIE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A business almost destroyed by a tornado last year has reopened its doors in Mantachie.
L and L Screenprinting was nearly leveled during a storm that ripped off its roof and threatened the lives of nearly everyone inside.
But Friday afternoon, the owners held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at a new location on Highway 371 North.
One of the owners remembers what it was like to be inside the old building when the storm hit.
"The tornado came up, and we had seven people inside of a small bathroom when the tornado hit. It blew up, and when it hit, it was gone in just a matter of minutes," said co-owner Cory Lindsey.
