The city of McGregor is still recovering from last week's devastating EF-1 tornado. 

 What was once a historic building and recent tattoo shop, had to be torn down. The city is also trying to save it's historic architecture. 

The City of McGregor Facebook page says, "Many buildings have been heavily damaged and are missing pieces of their architectural trim. If you find parts while cleaning up or strolling in or near downtown, please, no matter how small they are, make sure the business owner gets them or, if you are unsure, take them to city hall. We will make sure the owner receives them. Thank you."

The Clayton County Sheriff's Office says the city of McGregor suffered "severe storm damage."

Authorities say they are not aware of any injuries.

St. Mary's Church in McGregor is being used as a shelter for people.
