Quick Dorothy, into the root cellar with Toto.
I was going to say, "How quickly we forget," but I think it's more a matter of being in denial...

What scares me the most is the huge number of people who live in mobile homes in Tornado Alley that don't have any safe place to run. I live in one of these rat traps, and know it would turn into one of those piles of splinters that I see on the news.

Make one of those sandbag shelters and call it a root cellar the rest of the time.

With 8000 buildings damaged and 2500 buildings completely destroyed and 1500 missing with 125 dead, the Joplin tornado seems to be turning into a very serious disaster. Could it possibly be that 1500-2000+ people have actually been killed in this disaster? During the recent news media conference I watched on CNN, the news media weren't exactly getting their questions answered.


Edit;

And with now a Tornado touching down near Durham, California, it seems to be getting a little like this;

I sincerely hope the loss of life is not in that range.

The news reports I've seen suggest that the number of "missing" is in part because the lists of people hospitalized, bugged-out, and deceased have not been cross-referenced yet. It seems entirely likely, given the destruction, that some of the missing will be fatalities though. frown
