Should towns invest more money in tornado warning systems?
Should towns begin to install more warning systems and shelters as "mega tornadoes" become more commonplace?
Not necessarily. The warning system we have now is pretty advanced. It's just that by the time you realize a tornado has touched down, there's barely anytime to do anything about it. It comes from how serious people take the initial watches and warnings in the beginning.
Yes, I think so. Especially if you live in an area where there are frequent tornadoes.
High risk areas should make this a priority. However not every town is subject to tornado's
Yes, I think so. Living in the Midwest, sirens help notify us to go to shelter at night and in evening tornadoes, where you might not otherwise be paying attention to see a tornado coming.
Living in the UK we escape tornadoes but here's my two cents;
If they did have more warning systems and one was activated causing a mass exodus, but to be informed that all is well and people may return ...would they be thankful for the false alarm?
On the other hand, if it didn't go off and there was a tornado, who will face the mob?
Very much so, the earlier the warning, the better the chance of survival

I predict it's just a matter of time (hours, at most days) before the conspiracy theorists accuse President Obama of engineering (read: causing) today's horrific tornadoes in Oklahoma to take the media glare off his scandalous administration.Just like he did with Hurricane Sandy to win the election...
