Tornado Alley is Hit with 22 Tornadoes in ONE day

Tornadoes are disasters that wreck havoc on families with damage and destruction. Tornadoes are scary, destructive and deadly. How can we prevent escalating volatile weather events?

I remember those eerie skies and huddling in the bathtub. Tornadoes are really scary natural events. My husband was a radio news director in Tulsa, Oklahoma when our son was a toddler ... you talk about scared being home alone for EVERY tornado event! But he had to report to work to handle the emergency broadcasts and I had to hold down the homefront.

We had a routine. Open the west windows and shut the east windows. Drag the twin mattress into the bathtub. Keep the battery powered radio close. Watch the skies grow pink and orange and gray. And if the radio reported tornadoes in our part of town...head for the bathroom.

We had tornadoes hit within a mile of us, not once, but three times during our years in Tulsa.

Not fun. I empathize with Oklahomans who faced 22 tornadoes in one day.

This fearsome respect for nature is the main reason I work so hard to bring you sustainability solutions. Climate change with more volatile weather is something I really, really don't want to wish on my fellow Americans. This is why...

Disaster Management

Communities are ripped apart, families suffer for years...and we have the technology available to reduce these volatile events. The question is whether we have the will.
