Can't just not do anything because some people are ignorant.

After the severe weather of the last few years I'd generally say the public has a more heightened awareness of tornadoes around here. I imagine this years emergency preparedness week may be more publicized by the media than it has been in previous years.

i agree fully with this that it will be more publicized, but at the same time i think that its gonna take a devastating event to really catch the eyes of the government in order to actually get a fire lit under there butts and think well yeah maybe we should have done something i hope that it really doesn't come down to that but lets be honest that's what is probably gonna take. It is only a matter of time before we get struck with a EF3-5 and it causes huge amounts of property and bodily damage and god forbid loss of life, we are getting up there in the statistics, just like the southern states i was watching a documentary on Dallas Fort Worth tornado and gets 100+ touch downs a season, and we get 10% of that if you look at it percentage wise and they are just waiting for that one to come ripping though.
