Wow.  it kind of feels like we're getting more of these for some reason.  I wonder why.

Thirty seconds, maybe 40. that's how long Rick guesses it lasted.



But it was magical.

People in Oklahoma got hit by tornadoes twice with six miles between locations? Color me shocked.

Seriously, you have to know this will happen in Oklahoma. It's called Tornado Alley for a farking reason.

My sincere condolences to the folks who live there and suffer these tornadoes, but TAKE A FARKING HINT and move out of Oklahoma. There's nothing about Oklahoma that makes it worth dying over.

Time to move and rebuild....6 hundred miles and/or 6 states away. Numerology people feed on stuff like this.

Odds are, statistically,
the best place to rebuild in the 'alley' is exactly where you were when hit.
If you're insured, its a good way to escape a 5/1 arm tho.

Nope.
Speaking purely statistically, of course, past events do not influence future events.
If you flip a coin 99 times and they all come up heads, the odds of getting heads on the next flip is still 50/50.

"Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. "

I do not think that graph says what you think it says... There doesn't seem to be a discernible trend upwards, but the graph you posted has jack shiat to say about historically low numbers. Reality is more like the below.

We all have to live somewhere, but why doesn't Oklahoma have the most kick ass underground basements in the world?

Their hiding spots always seem limited to grade level interior closets and farking bathtubs.

My understanding is that the ground there isn't really "soil" or "dirt", in the usual easily-dug-out sense. It's more like a concrete-like clay that really makes basements and such difficult. Slab construction is pretty much the norm.

log_jammin: Ambivalence: Wow.  it kind of feels like we're getting more of these for some reason.  I wonder why.

not really


Because it's Tornado Alley, and Tornado Alley will continue to get tornados for the foreseeable future. The rate will change but the count will inevitably go up. Therefore, more tornadoes will destroy houses.

Proceed with the statistical arguments, but I actually didn't initially read Ambivalence's comment as one about tornado-per-year rates.

And thus you die horribly when an F4 or F5 scours your house down to the dirt  when it passes over you. People really can't can't come up with another $7500 when building a house?

I'm not saying that home builders capitalize on white flight to convince white people to build homes in the middle of known tornado areas, flood plains, landslide risk areas or anything but seriously, white people, cut it out.

Black folks had Hurricane Katrina, but y'all have Hurricane Katrina every year.

Even better, TFA says the first house was in Picher, OK, which is now abandoned due to cave-in risks, groundwater contamination and health effects associated with mine tailings.

Picher back when it was inhabited.

Because Jesus wants them dead and He keeps failing.  Why are these Good Christians thwarting the will of God?
