In my opinion, i think this is a very unfortunate event and i feel for the families and loved ones of those lost in this horrific act of nature.
The unfortunate thing is when something like this happens, you cant put the person responsible behind bars for this wrong doing against humanity because this wasnt a person, it was an act of nature.
