It's been nearly six weeks since an EF-4 tornado touched down in Wayne, Nebraska, devastating homes and businesses, but some companies still don't know whether they'll re-open and get back to business.

Executives at Pacific Coast Feather, in Wayne, said they haven't made a decision whether to rebuild the plant that a tornado leveled on October 4.

Instead, they're focused on the clean-up process and the huge amount of debris still left behind.

But, this means about 150 jobs are on the line.

The mayor of Wayne said he hopes the company decides to stay in the community.

"We're all obviously hoping that they stay. They provide a lot of really high quality jobs in Wayne and it's a huge economical impact to our community," Mayor Ken Chamberlain said.

But, just because some businesses haven't made the choice to stay, others are already rebuilding.
