It was a bad storm, abnormally severe, but not totally unexpected. This part of the country has many tornadoes every year. People die every year from them. But usually not hundreds like this. Every spring, like clockwork, you will see people from trailer parks on TV talking about "why god?!?" Well if you live in a place called "Tornado Alley" and live in a home that could get flipped by a few motivated men, you are taking a risk. Housing code should be better.
