My friend's wife had her kids in the basement in their three story house when the tornado hit. His wife was on top of the kids when the house collapsed on top of her. She ended up saving her kids (they didn't have a scratch on them) but had her legs crushed. One leg was amputated from the knee down, and the other was amputated from the ankle down. She is going to make it, though. It's a miracle that any of them are still alive.
The whole thing is just awful. Can't even describe it, really.
Here in Florida we complain about the hurricanes, but they're nothing compared to those tornadoes. We always have plenty of time to plan and evacuate if necessary.
Another thing, I always associated Tornadoes with Kansas and Oklahoma. Is the tornado "hot spot" (if there is such a thing), creeping north? (global warming?). Because lately its all Missouri and Indiana.
