Approximately 122 2022 Corvettes were damaged beyond repair in the Assembly Plant due to the early morning Tornado that passed through Bowling Green on Saturday​

As we reported on Saturday, a destructive Tornado passed through Bowling Green during the early morning hours on Saturday, December 11th - leveling homes and causing significant damage to the National Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park as well as the Corvette Assembly Plant.

According to reports we received, the gas station across the street from the Assembly Plant was nearly destroyed and the hotel just outside of the Assembly Plant sustained significant damage when the tornado picked up a truck and threw it into the hotel.

From what we were told, the cause of the fire in back of, or on the top of the Assembly Plant was caused by a ruptured fuel line, although we haven't been able to verify that.
