I don,t think I could, In the Uk they are quite rare but in the last few years it has started to gradually become a little more common, we have had bad gales and a couple of tornados thats taken the roof off some houses and cause some flooding. I blame the ozone layer. I already have ideas in my mind incase I ever get in2 a situation like that to rescue my family. xx

I would really rather deal with the tornados and take my chances rather than move, all of our family is here, and my husbands job, like someone said in an earlier post the destruction is usually in a small area, although I experienced one in 1998 the tornado itself was a mile wide, it was higher than an F5 in rating, and destroyed miles and miles. We do have pretty good warning systems though, ocassionally one will occur without warning, but its very rare, and for some reason usually occurs in very sparsley populated areas (Thank God) but I think anyone here knows that if you have thunderstorms you watch the weather because a tornado can break out at any time. But when you grow up here you don't really see it as putting your family in danger all the time

Not in here, there not much of that. But with all the problems with global warming, the weather it´s changing even in here Portugal. We never heard from hurricanes in here and now, from time to time we have a«some mini mini tornados over here.

I live in Romania, where tornadoes never appear. There have been some phenomenons that some idiots claimed to have been a tornado, but the weather here makes it impossible for tornadoes to existe. So, there's no danger for me...

I don't think I will, but where I come from, we don't have much natural disaster.. so if it does ever occur, I'll probably try to move.

Very rare in this area of the US. Here it's earthquakes. I don't mind them, most of the time they're very small, and not as frequent as some people think. In fact I'm so used to them, that when we get a good sized one, I usually forget to do anything about it because I'm sitting there saying, "wow, that's a pretty good one!"

I grew up in "Tornado Alley" in north central Oklahoma USA. There are more tornados there per square mile than anywhere. While the storms are scary, and can be quite devastating, the devastation is usually limited in scope (as opposed to a hurricane). the Tornado is usually quick and has a narrow path (usually, although there can be mega storms, or storms with multiple tornadoes that damage large areas) Usually too, there are very good warning systems with super capable radar and good people. Some of the best predictors live there because of the weather 'situation'. I lived there for 21 yrs and only saw one from a distance one time. My father has lived there for over 50 and has never had any trouble with a storm, but my mother is insisting on storm shelter for protection, just in case. :o) Now I live on the east coast of USA (Maryland) tornados can occur here too, but don't very often, thank goodness.

Tornadoes wouldn't bother me so much, I think I could deal with that better than a place like the gulf coast (hurricanes, flooding) or parts of California (earthquakes).
