DEXTER, Mich. (WJBK) -

Today marks one year since a destructive winter tornado struck southeast Michigan, leaving behind a slew of destruction in a tiny Washtenaw Co. village.

In Dexter, more than 200 homes were damaged and 20 houses were destroyed.

Miraculously, not one person suffered any injuries. That was hard to imagine on March 15, 2012 when FOX 2 cameras revealed the destruction on York and Noble in the Huron Farms subdivision.

One year later, if you return to York and Noble, you would never know a twister touched down. A busy summer of rebuilding left a sparkling new neighborhood.

Take a look below:
