  • this is why all small towns need a trailer park filed with old people. They act as natural tornado magnets, and prevent damage to more expensive property.

  • Why bother making a wood hut which is going to blow away with all your stuff inside of it. Just build a fallout grade bunker and sip your whiskey as the wind blows by..

  • Over the years deaths from tornadoes has declined due mainly to education and preparation. Honestly, though, I think we're seeing more deaths now because of the more extreme weather caused by climate change. Feel free to downvote my "political" statement!

  • OK, yesterday was a bad day around here. There were alarms going off for hours! With a tornado, there is little time to run. I have a safe room in the middle of the house. Safe? No windows. I live about 30 miles west of Elizabethtown. I was thankful that the alarms were loud enough to wake me. I am sorry for those that perished and their families. Homes can be rebuilt.

  • The main problem with sheltering in the basement is being trapped with broken water and gas pipes and possible live elecric wires.

  • This is obviously an act of God. He's punishing conservative Kentuckians for being drunken heathens. At least that's how Falwell used to explain these things.

  • Ah, My old Kentucky Home. Bluegrass, Horseys, the land that gave us the Colonel and his chickens, biscuits & gravy. Chicken fried steak, and fine Kentucky bourbon whiskey. Mint julips. You survived the war of Northern Agression, Lincoln and Johnson and reconstruction. Rise again old dixie!

  • Hello. Why dont people build their houses proof to these disasters ? Like Houses in Spain, England, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, and so on ?

    • @xaxaxav About a dozen comments cover this just look down.And I dont think any of those countries you have listed build for powerful tornadoes.

    • @xaxaxav

      An EF4 tornado has sustained winds of 166-200 mph (267-322 kmh)

      An EF5 tornado has sustained winds of well over 200 mph (322 kmh)

      Unless a house is build out of 24" thick, re-bar reinforced concrete with NO windows, it will not survive those tornadoes. It's not just the winds you have to worry about. It is also flying cars and other debris that would crush or penetrate walls.

  • ha! Love the part where the guy is obviously sitting IN the tornado, or very close to the actual funnel -he says "that was one hell of a windstorm" - dude; that was not a windstorm, that was a tornado.

    • @CvilleGordo No, he definitely wasn't in it. He may have been hit by a downburst near the tornado, but definitely not the tornado itself. I don't even think I saw the winds change direction at all.

  • Living in England, I can;t even begin to imagine living in a community where the weather poses a regular threat to the lives of families and friends. It is strange to think that the weather is so capable of completely altering your outlook on life.

    • @mdj2010 You know outside the USA, the UK has the most amount of tornadoes in Europe.. http://www.uk-severe-weather.co.uk/uk-tornado-information.php

    • @moon69

      I did realise that and it is an astonishing fact which I believe became general knowledge after that surprisingly large twister caused havoc in Birmingham.

      Is it really true though that most folks in Tornado Alley have never experienced the devestation of a twister? I find that hard to believe...

  • This is not meant as an insult, it simply puzzles me why most houses seem to be built of wood and other lightweight materials in the tornado affected areas of the USA. Surely brick built houses would make more sense or am I missing something?

    • @ashamedGerman I know what you are saying but surely it is possible to build houses that can withstand an average tornado. Concrete blocks are actually the same price as wood.

    • @ashamedGerman FINALLY someone who understands! :D Literally the only thing we can do is install storm shelters, or undergroud bomb shelters. And some Midwestern communities (like Joplin) are considering making that mandatory for all new homes.

  • Last time we had a touch down of little one 1 mile from place I live at in Louisville,KY. Right before it, I said "F@ck u tornado, I'm going to sleep" . I was just back from 12hr shift. I found out it in the evening driving to work, when my usual route had bunch off fallen trees, fences,parts of roofs...
    Yesterday definitely sucked to drive in heavy downpour, yeah it's kinda early for tornadoes, but we had really mild winter.
