Recovery efforts underway at Crown after Celina tornado


CELINA — Work was progressing on repairs at the Crown manufacturing plant in Celina, according to a corporate statement.

The southwest corner of the plant was directly hit by an EF2 tornado Sunday, knocking out power and forcing the plant to shut down.

Crown is thankful for the local authorities and first responders who provided immediate support and continue to assist with the recovery efforts.”

Power has since been restored to the plant, according to the statement. No employees were injured as a result of the damage.
