LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A bus tour of Greater Lafayette gave people a chance to the greener side of the cities.
The Green Tour visited four area rain gardens. The first stop was Imagination Station where a garden was installed last spring.
Rain gardens take rain runoff and redirects it, keeping it out of storm water systems. Student Nick Babin says keeping the environment clean starts with a small effort.
"That's how these things start," said Babin. "They start with demonstration. Projects kind of like this one. Then they spread out to communities and neighborhoods. It just takes a little bit."
Other stops on the tour included Cary Home, Oakland High School and Purdue University.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
