MH can be safe in tornadoes if they have a basement. My buddy has a basement model and he simply climbs into the basement during tornadoes. He hasnt blown away yet...


Friends: Easy to make and hard to get rid of.

I use the "Don't Live in Tornado/Hurricane/Typhoon Country" method myself...

So far, so good

Another reason to have a RV. You can get out of danger and when you return you have a place to stay.
Never try to outrun a tornado in a RV!!! Get into proper shelter right away! They move to fast, its not like a hurricane where you have advance notice.


True....but you can also see a storm front moving say from Gulf area traveling N/E and if in upper MS/AL/TN etc. one can move N/W---S/E---N or E and in a few hours be out of the projected path.

What do you think us FT'ers do.....put our head in the sand. Although have done that too when storm track wasn't projected in time, a deep depression is safer than being in the RV.
A few years ago, a Hurricane chased us from Alabama to Mississippi (one day) to Louisiana (the next day), to Texas (the next day) where we were finally out of reach.
