Frightening video. Used to live less than a half mile from Murphy High and Trinity Church, a very pretty part of town.

If only they hadn't taken God out of the church, he wouldn't have allowed this to happen.

That hole in the wall is a testament to God's glory.  It is a glory hole.

My theory is that a vast number of mobile homes still contain large collections of 8-tracks, and the spiral magnetic fields collectively work to attract charged particles found in tornado dust.

As a meteorologist, this is entirely accurate and thoroughly grounded in good science. Tornado magnetism works best under Led Zeppelin conditions paired with the stylings of Frank Zappa.

can i have some of the pot that you have been smoking ?

Anyhow, I have always wondered why the dont make mobile homes ( mostly an oxymoron in real life ) out of steel, like cargo containers. I have been inside a few of the regular ones that were kinda nice, but they seemed cheaply made. I know the target market is not for folks who could afford a regular framed house, but, pulling some random figure out of my butt- couldnt they afford 5 grand more for a steel unit ?

If that steel box isn't anchored down well it will just go flying. And if it is anchored, it had better be a really well built steel box, or the the tornado will rip it apart. Something like a cargo container won't stand up to a tornado, so it would have to be even beefier, and then you get into cost issues, transportation issues, you name it.

The solution is to have tornado shelters required for each new home, or community shelters for mobile home parks, apartment buildings, and condos. Above ground, simple steel rebar reinforced concrete shelters are just a few thousand dollars. And people have been digging their own simple underground shelters for generations.

Of course my mothers side of the family lives in Missouri. Not a single one that I know of have a tornado shelter; nor do those who live in houses have basements. I don't get it. Sure some are dirt poor and live in ancient mobile homes without working plumbing, but others are wealthy enough to have a $250,000 RV and a $500,000 McMansion. Yet even thought they live in one of the most deadly tornado prone areas in the country, they don't bother to do anything to prepare. I just can't grasp that mindset.

/$500,000 is ALOT of house in Missouri

Clearly, this is what happens when you take God out of mobile homes. Also, the feminized single parent environment of the modern trailer isn't helping either. You just have a mass of whimpering women and children passively accepting victimization by tornadoes, whereas if there were a man in the house, you'd see him and and even the husky 12-year-old boys wrestling down the twister with their bare hands. Especially if he'd played football in high school.

In the book Silence of the Lambs, one of the things mentioned about Hannibal Lecter is that he collects articles on church collapses.

They are called mobile homes because they tend to be suspended and spinning in midair, to the endless fascination of drooling idiots on the ground below.

So we could use mobile homes to divert tornadoes from other areas?

Your right. This could have been avoided if we had a police officer in every mobile home.

No, man, I think you have a totally good idea there. Even better if you pair each cop with a quiet bachelor without close friends and who, according to his neighbors, keeps to himself and is the last person you'd expect to attack a Chuck E Cheese with a meat cleaver.

Given the Episcopal Church's stance on homosexuality there are probably many who really do think that this was God's punishment on them.

I like it! First, take another census, but this time ask people about their neighbors. Everyone who fits the profile of a serial killer or mass shooter gets a police officer assigned to them.

Of course that could get expensive, so we may just want to round them all up. For their own protection of course.
