    If these houses were made out of metal shipping containers, they could’ve survived this storm with minimum damage.

    It’s 2020, we have the technology to create AI, create clones of animals, allow deaf people to hear again. Yet we still don’t have technology good enough to alert people and give them enough time to get away from mother nature’s bad weather ?! Are you serious ?? Wtfff

    I just saw the video of the guy in the crane that is crazy to see!

    Please help the families of the lost. Early warning alarm and tracking radios should have been issued free. And those who had deep shelters should have previously told their neighbors welcome. 24 deaths indicates poor tornado processes in the town.

    If I had the money and lived in an area like this I’ll make my house custom under ground so I wouldn’t lose anything especially if things like this happen often where I live

    I live in TN and my mom made us sleep downstairs (so we could access our safe spot easily) a tornado didn’t come to our county, which I’m really thankful for, but we had really bad storms. As it turns out I slept through the whole thing. My family was very fortunate, but not everyone else was as lucky. My condolences to anyone who lost their loved ones or homes during the tornado.

    The names of the couple that was killed were  Michael Dolfini, 36, Albree Sexton, 33. If you are going to name them in your post, at least get the names correct! They deserve at least that.

    I wish I had words to say but I don’t. I just keep looking while I’m crying.. I really just don’t know what else, what reaction is needed right with this. I’ve gone through a Cat4 in Indiana so I understand that fear but not the loss.. Prayers don’t help them, I’m so so sorry doesn’t help them. There literally is nothing you can say EXCEPT, I’m not just moving about life smiling and happy while you suffer.. I don’t live anywhere near you but it hurts to know that you’re in so much pain.. That’s what I have and I’m sorry if that is or sounds horrible or bad.. I just don’t know what to say..

    This is so scary…. Please forgive my ignorance but I thought they were able to tell you days ahead of time if a tornado was likely to hit your town. I know their trajectories are very hard to predict but I was under the impression the government notified or even evacuated the areas that could be affected. Here it didn’t even seem like the folks were prepared for high winds.

    Couldn’t have happen to a more deserving city. Tennessee is a racist state , and now it must reep it’s punishment from God. This is only the beginning , just wait and see for yourself.

    Did you hear about people cheering at a Bernie rally about tornadoes killing and destroying in the red states? No, you didn’t. That was supporters at a Trump speech cheering coronavirus deaths in blue states.. ISIS and Trump supporters both enjoy seeing Americans die.

    all tragedy is horrible. but these numbers are low. these homes and businesses held up just like they were designed. they are destroyed. but everything falls to a tornado, esp an ef3-4. most of these peoples basements and cellars held sound. and thats something to be happy about. as long as the foundation is still sturdy, rebuilding will be a lot easier.
