  • Nice roof. Too bad they built the walls out of toothpicks.

  • Looks like the gymnasium was constructed of flimsy wood. If they build it steel beams and masonry, it should survive the tornado. So the Euro LiveLeak kept telling us.

  • Schools face tough calls with tornado outbreak

    By Jason Keyser and Tom Coyne / March 6, 2012

    HENRYVILLE, Ind.—The tornado came at the worst possible time for the hundreds of students loaded on school buses, ready to head home in Henryville, Ind.

    There was no time to follow the preferred safety plan and herd students off the bus and inside the school. Instead, an assistant principal signaled drivers to go, setting off a desperate race to beat the tornado that was just minutes from slamming i More..

  • Dear sirs,

    I would like to invest in the company that built and/or installed the security camera. Shit didn't budge an inch.

    • @Dan_Druft
      Why they keep building out of wood in areas hit by tornadoes is beyond me. Surely people are more important than a few dollars.

    • @Dan_Druft @Existism Can you believe the outside walls were constructed of brick and mortar? Here is a very short 17 seconds of video from the outside wall before the camera cuts out: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=326370970759525

  • West Clark Community council meeting:

    "So, knowing that our area is prone to tornadoes, what materials shall we use to build our schools?"

    "Soup crackers!"

    "Yes! And styrofoam!"

    "We'll need some sticky tape for structural support!"

  • That's what happens when you build a straw house instead of a brick house.
