It’s really hard to get an idea of deadliest US tornado, living in California, but we all sympathize, looking at the pictures of what is left after the tornadoes in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The year of 2011 is called the 5th deadliest tornado in US History and the deadliest in 75 years. Tornadoes are formed when two weather fronts of different temperatures create wind sheer. And because of the global worming we see this difference in weather and more tornadoes are formed.
The worth thing is that this is not the end of the tornado season and people are waiting for more. So far 452 people died already and no one knows how strong the other once will be. President Obama called it National Tragedy, and I agree. So many people died, but it’s nature and there is nothing people can do to stop it. In areas where the tornadoes hit, many people live in mobile homes, and during the tornado everything was tossed in the air, cars, mobile homes and even people.
I really like the story about the hero, who was the manager at pizza shop. When the tornado approach, Christopher Lucas, close more than a dozen people in the freezer, but the door didn’t close from the inside, only from the outside, so he found the rope and kept the door closed as long as he could, until the tornado pulled him away. The hero, father of two died, but saved people from death.
Another story was about the pregnant mother of three, who cowered in bathtub with her children. When the storm passed, her 15-month-old son was dead, Hamil and her five-year-old daughter were in serious condition and her three-year-old son was gone.
Nature is stronger than we are and it reminds us of it pretty often for the last few years, we need to be strong and friendly to be safe and happy.
