Some may think the kid overreacted but if you live in an area where you don't get these things, getting one is pretty frigging scary. It's like living in Florida and getting a blizzard. You don't know how to handle it unless you came from a snowy area. I just don't think it's cool to laugh at something so destructive and that tornado did some significant damage.
My mom seen this happen when staying in an RV park in Illinois:
She had just met the family at breakfast the day before. Someone in a big motorhome thought the kids were too loud to be in a tent next to them...so the park had them move to the wooded lot in which family members were killed & the family pet. The dad was in the process of loading up the kids in the car, when the tree snapped and landed on the tent that some of his children were in. 90 MPH winds came out of no where.
My mom gave away her resort membership after that...
There are pictures in our paper this morning of real destruction. :( Only 25 miles from Pittsburgh.
