Dennis, Alicia, Pam Grout, and J. Todd Foster. "Torn Apart, Pulling Together." People 77.12 (2012): 64-67. Academic Search Complete. Web. 20 June 2014.

Bradley Blackwell Holway's insight:

When an outbreak of tornadoes rips through midwestern and southern cities, people better take shelter.  Courages acts performed by random citizens of these villeges risked their lives to protect others.  People were killed, homes were destroyed; tornadoes are not safe in any way or any form.

The chances of a tornado occuring in the United States varies depending on your location; so watch out you southerners.  Tornado occurence has increased through the years due to the raise in temperature, causing people to be concerned.  With tornados ripping through people cities, people must previously figure out shelter locations.
