A new brick and frame home will replace over 200 destroyed homes, including at least two in Florida, CNN affiliate WPTV reported.
The houses were destroyed in a tornado that killed at least 18 people and destroyed hundreds of homes in Moore and Lake Mary, officials said on Thursday.
The Moore home, on an acreage valued at more than $1 million, will replace the previous home on the same lot, said Jeff Schumacher, a Moore city councilman.
The Lake Mary home, which was worth more than a million dollars, will also replace the home, said City Administrator Terry Gresham.
The homes were built in the 1940s and 1950s and were among the earliest in Florida to have windows and brick, Gresman said.
They are in Moore’s historic Bodega Block, which is about 1.5 miles (2.3 kilometers) northwest of the city center.
Residents of the Moore and Bodegas were displaced by the tornado, but Greshaver said there are no immediate plans for residents to return to their homes.
“We’re going to work with the owners to try and get their homes back as quickly as possible,” he said.
The new home is slated to be ready in about three weeks.
