You're right. If people are gonna live in tornado alley then they need to build underground or something. I couldn't live there unless I was underground.
Sad story. I hate hearing this stuff as I have a soft heart.
A 22 year old son was texting his mother right before an ef4 tornado struck his home killing him in Vilonia, Arkansas.
your ability to run at over 10 miles an hour for an extended period, or until you reach some kind of safe haven. How long can you maintain 10 mph for?
And what if there are no cars around, or no ditches to hide in? What if he could not drive?

A house in a tornado prone area, should be UNINSURABLE if it has four walls at 90 degree angles to the ground, a wooden substructure, and no hardened basement! The building and insurance industries KNOW this! They know the weaknesses that exist in these buildings, and to continue to build and insure them in their current format amounts to fraud!
