I agree that a public building like a school that is packed with potential 
victims during large portions of the year ought to have a tornado shelter 
-that's what we call them.

But even then, there's a lot of discussion as to what such a thing ought to 
 encompass. Typical school has, what, 600-1000 kids in it?

Sending the kids into the hall SHOULD have been sufficient - had it not 
suffered a direct-strike by a monster storm with ~200 mph winds.

unpreparedness?

I don't have to handle tornadoes hereabouts (leaving my son out of the 
discussion), however, my $0.02 worth.

Designing just for "probability" of strike may be inadequate.  Recent
