Tornadoes are nothing to screw with. I was in Dekalb County when the outbreak hit a few years ago, and it was godawful to see after. Entire streets were wiped out. The destruction was completely random. One house was hit and just gone, while another one 50 yards away was completely untouched. The fire station one town over became a triage station while the storms were still going on. There were two doctors performing surgery on people, trying to get them stable and keep them alive long enough to get them anywhere in the middle of the station, while the front part was acting as a shelter/triage center, and the back was a makeshift morgue. That same station went on to become a shelter for a couple hundred people afterwards, and at one point was making up to 8,000 meals a day for responders and people without homes.
