How to survive a tornado
Here is the full text of the tip I find a bit frightening, mainly because in times of crisis it seems to make sense to flock to the mall à la Dawn of the Dead to scoop up rubber boots and shovels.
"Avoid “long-span” buildings. Shopping malls, theaters, and gymnasiums can be especially dangerous because the roof is supported only by the walls. If there is no time to leave such a building to get to a safer place, get under a door frame or something else that could deflect falling debris."
Their information was compiled from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center. There are links to both sites if you wish to dig further.
Looking around for information on how safe it is to be on the seventh floor of an apartment building. I know enough to stay away from the windows and am fairly sure it would take a storm of biblical proportions (enjoy this video message from Harold Camping that at least for now threat seems to have passed ) to do serious damage. But wondering what it would take to make the building sway? I'm hoping I don't get to find out.
P.S. The fact that Rogers has a commercial leading into Camping's prediction of the next rapture seems like a sign of the end of the world to me.
