Actually more people live in tornado alley then ever.

Sad of course when people die that way.

The point of your staring a thread about this?

My gawd,
Tony, don't you ever let go of your hatred long enough to share the sorrow of fellow Americans?

The Good Reverend Fred Phelps is right. This is further punishment from God for supporting gay marriage.

The POINT Of my STARTING a thread like this? The disaster. The horror...the hope that these people are okay. Aren't you interested in any news about Americans that doesn't have to do with you bashing a democrat? Are you that consumed with hatred that the story isn't enough to have you comment on the tragedy and share something with a democrat?

You are lost...and in a soulless world, Ex.
Thanks from waitingtables, Fayt and imaginethat

It is horrible. I hope that these kids are all safely freed from this rubble. My heart is breaking watching this.

Which is why God sends tornados to the Bible Belt, instead of homosexual hotbeds like San Francisco.

It was reported that the elementary children left before it hit and were in a Church to the south of the town, but about 75 high schools children were unaccounted for. How utterly sad for these parents. What a panic. What will they do without a home? What a disaster.

I did comment. I said it was sad. Did you not read that? Or was it seeing my post and all you could do was start spinning like a top? Where did I mention "democrat"?

Then, after I said it was sad, I asked what was the purpose behind a thread like this and all you can do is bash, per usual.

So, why did you start this thread?

I think it might be a combination of factors.

As you noted, more people moving into such areas. But the storms themselves might also be getting more frequent.

Apparently it's not high school only, it's third grades as well or only. Not sure yet.

I heard 2 and a half mild wide. Hard to believe that a tornado did this.

If I recall, the worst tornado in U.S. history was in the ... 1910s or 20s????? Not sure on the date.

Anyway, it was a couple miles wide, on the ground for hours... that's right, hours, crossed at least three rivers, and I think left about 600 dead.

Of course back then, they didn't have any sort of warning systems or electronic news media, so most of the people in the path had no idea it was coming.

Read up about the "Tri-State" tornado."

It made anything we've seen (including probably this one) look like a popcorn fart.
