At the very least, you'd think these folks would have built a small, underground storm shelter (like the one at the home in the first scene of
Twister), if not a basement...when living in such places.
These tornadoes have been going on a while though...why the hell were kids in school?
They get the warning and don't seek shelter.
That is maddening to me. We occasionally get such tornado warnings during hurricanes, and you can bet we heed them. We have storm drills occasionally
too, simply because we have SO much to deal with if there is a sudden storm (even if just a nasty thunderstorm). (we have to not only ensure our
safety, but that of the animals as well). We even park our trucks more in the open yard away from possible debris like branches, etc.
Now, before you tell me about practicing what I preach, my area has never had more than slight damage from the storms, and a hurricane can engulf an
entire state, vs. the prime tornado target cities.
