Maybe they should allow six weeks to get personal items out. Photos, and
such. And then burn the entire city to the ground, let it go back to

During the flood of news coverage regarding the tornado in Moore, OK,
they have said over and over that they will rebuild. I can understand
their need to rebuild, but somehow their plans dont make much sense to
They have had 3 major tornados in that town during the past 14 years. I
believe the dates were 1999, 2003, and 2013. The tv coverage showed the
paths of these three tornados, and all of them crossed the same points.
There is a saying that says "three strikes and you're out". Yes, these
people need to rebuild, BUT NOT AT THAT SAME LOCATION. It appears that
location is a crossroads for tornados. Sure, a tornado can hit
anywhere, but for some reason, this particular place seems to be the
spot where they occur repeatedly. It's just not a safe place to build.
They need to relocate that whole town elsewhere. This is no different
than towns along rivers that flood every few years, and many such towns
are forced to relocate by local or federal government. Moore should be
no different. Actually, the people should now know to do so. How many
times will they have to rebuild and how many more lives must be lost
before they come to their senses.
Seeing the buildings that were destroyed, it's obvious that they can not
build any structure strong enough to exist in that place. Many of the
buildings were constructed of concrete and steel, and even those did not
survive. No building can be built strong enough to survive storms like
that. Why even try to rebuild in that same location.
I'm no expert on storms or the terrain of that area, but there must be
some reason that that terrain and/or atmosphere keep demolishing that
same place. That town just needs to be moved. The homes which survived
should be moved, and those that were destroyed need to be built
elsewhere. Oklahoma is a fairly large state, there must be somewhere
else to move that town, not too far away, but in a safer place. Then
the current location should be turned back to crop land or forests and
never lived on again. It's just common sense!
