DELMONT, S.D. (AP) — Residents of Delmont over the weekend celebrated the rebuilding of a church destroyed in a tornado more than two years ago.

The Daily Republic reports that about 420 people attended a two-hour dedication service on Saturday in the new Zion Lutheran Church.

The church was among many buildings that were damaged or destroyed by the May 10, 2015, tornado that also injured nine people.

Church building committee chairman Terry Klumb says the project was financed by insurance and nearly $300,000 in donations.
