I dunno what's wrong with our weather here and why it always wants to kill us.
If it's not a flood or a hurricane it's a tornado...

Its just God who is pissed at people because of abortion and gay marriage.

Seriously tho because of climate change extreme destructive weather like tornados and hurricanes are becoming more common and destructive.

Well that God being pissed stuff was something a lot of conservative and religious people said after hurricane Katrina, I kid you not. They said so cuz the city of New Orleans is so liberal compared to most of the South.

But guess you are right. Extreme weather due to climate change will probably one day kill us all.

Oooooh. Maybe the wind gods are angry. Quick someone needs to perform some rituals to appease them.... These southern "Christians" who gloat over others are no better than pharisees and are simply using God's name in vain.

In all seriousness, these have already been predicted but profits were prioritized over the environment which is never going to affect the capitalists. The world's economy and fiat money derives their value from oil.

I was really upset when I heard about the tornado that struck eastern New Orleans. I have many relatives that live there and I was born there too. My mom is a New Orleanian. Hurricane Katrina happened 11 1/2 years ago and it devastated almost all the city. New Orleans really hasn't fully recovered from this tragedy and now it has to deal with another tragedy. But despite all of these happenings my hometown will persevere. The spirit and soul of New Orleans sustains her. BTW..New Orleans celebrates her 300th. year anniversary in 2018 and Mardi Gras (Carnival) will be celebrated this February 28, 2017.

Keep this thread on topic and positive please. The last thing we need is to bring politics and personal beliefs into a dangerous, potentially deadly scenario.

Further comments that can be taken as offensive or spiteful will be deleted.

On that note, stay safe Peanut_

A few years back a tornado came within a few miles of my house, so I have experienced the dangers of such. I wish you safety and luck down there.

The USA has always had a bad history with natural disasters, especially in the South. Claiming that a spell of bad weather is all because of climate change is like saying that a spell of cold calm weather is proof that climate change doesn't exist, so lets leave the climate rants out of this. And a thread describing a disaster like such is not the proper place to start mocking people for no good reason, so hush it.

While it is true that the US has a long history of natural disasters, we have enought evidence to say that climate change does increase the frequency, the intensity, the duration and timing of extreme weather events like droughts, floods, heat waves, hurricanes, tornadoes... So yeah it is relevant to the discusion.

Regardless, this is not an ROTW debate, so please do not continue.

I watched the video on the site. I'd be scared shitless being in the same state as a tornado, let alone that close.

I'd be scared shitless being in the same state as a tornado, let alone that close.Call me suicidal, but I always get a positive energy rush in situations like being in a major storm, getting lost in the woods, throwing rocks at beehives, or doing all sorts of dumb dangerous stuff. I have a feeling that I am going to get seriously injured one day from doing something really dumb, like standing outside during a thunderstorm.

Anyways, I hope you are not like me and stay away from dangerous situations!

Yeah it was pretty scary especially as it all happens so fast...we are more used to hurricanes. You can prepare for those way better but here as soon as you get the warning everthing has to be very quick.

Lol, not enough excitement in your life? Sure you get a rush of adrenaline but still...I could have gladly done without a lot of natural disasters and other dangerous shit I experienced. Personally I came out mostly unharmed but not everyone is that lucky.

So don't push your luck guys.

I live in Nebraska, so we usually have one or so tornado warnings a year. The good news is that the lead time until a tornado strikes is getting larger and very few people die in a tornado. Yes, I understand that a lot of houses in the south do not have basements, but that doesn't mean that you have to overreact. If you overreact, it is easier to be caught by the tornado at the wrong time.
