On Saturday, June 5, 2010 a large portion of Lake High School was destroyed by an EF4 tornado, which killed seven in the area around Millbury. The tornado threw a bus onto the tennis courts and tore off the back end of the school and also hit the Lake Township police station. Graduation was to be held on Sunday, June 6 at the school. The building was described as "completely destroyed" and "unsalvageable". One of those killed was the father of the 2010 valedictorian. The students spent two school years at Owens Community College while the new building was constructed.
