its been one of my biggest questions for awhile now. people who live in brick homes can go to a basement and most of the time be safe. they always say if your in a mobile home find shelter immediately like a ditch or something. the thing is where i live there is no ditches and they dont give you to much time in advance to know where a tornado is going to hit. i think landlords if they are going to take on responsibility of manging a mobile home park they should take responsibility for their tenants. i think alot of lives could be saved if only they had some where to go. what do you think?

I totally agree. Tornados ripped thru Central Florida on Groundhog Day. It took the lives of 20 people. One family was a 9 year old girl, her Mom and her Grandmother. It broke my heart to see the city won't pay for sirens. Lives could have been saved. According to the paper, Florida is second in the number of tornados touching down. Tornado Alley has the most touch downs.
