Tornadoes?

With the death count of 27 after last nights storm(s), has anyone here been affected? I'm hoping all is well...

Can't believe that many people died from a tornado.

The tornadoes went through West Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.
More than 44 ar confirmed dead right now. They are going door to door checking for survivors in all the states. We really dodged a bullet here. It all blew up west of us, so, it didn't have time to build before it got so bad. It was definately green though. It was horrible driving in quarter sized hail and winds strong enough to blow my car at a stand still. God bless everyone affected and everyone from those states, please check in as soon as you can.

DH and his mom are STILL in KY. They had some there too, just south of where they are staying. The car broke yesterday, that's all they would have needed on top of it!

Yes, I forgot about Kentucky, sorry. A lot of states were affected.

I hope no one at DC was affected by this. They said on the weather this morning that tornados can't be ruled out here right now. The wind has been horrible off and on all day. A lot of people don't realize that South Carolina has actually gotten a lot of tornados, including a really bad one in the county just south of ours during the '80s. I think most of South Carolina's tornados are to the west of us.

I feel really bad for people. But one thing I can't understand why couldn't they hide, run in the basement or something. Also I do not understand this crapy housing, why can't people build houses like in Europe, from brick. House like that might loose roof, but not get destroid ...
