Watching the devastation is breaking my heart. The Children being reunited with their families. My question is if this has already happened before in 1999 then were there storm shelters in place for these children & Teachers? Why would they not have put them in place? Ones placed in the ground I mean? Like a Mandatory building code for schools in Tornado prone areas or retrofitting since 1999??

The one school did have a basement and students died there. When a tornado is as nasty as this one was it is a miracle the death toll wasn't higher. Seems like all was done that could be done to protect the people in Moore. Moving forward I am sure they will try to do better but when it comes to tornadoes there isn't anything that is 100 percent. My sister and her family died in a tornado years ago. She was in a very nice storm shelter but it flooded and debris on the outside wouldn't allow them to get out so they all drowned. Her neighbors didn't have a storm shelter and they survived in a bathtub. I think when it is someones time to go nothing is going to prevent it from happening.
