Tornado hits New Orleans
I heard on the TV a lot of the FEMA trailers were thrown up into the air. Those poor people. If it isn't one thing, it's another.

Why does it seem Tornados strike where trailer parks are?
Does New Orleans normally have tornados?
This weather is something else.Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

This has some pictures and an update. One family had just moved back into their house that was destroyed in Katrina and now this one is destroyed.

i don't think tornadoes just happen to be attracted to trailer parks... although it sure does seem that way, doesn't it?
it's just that when tornados do hit an area, they are going to destroy the trailers before anything else. also it does seem that areas more prone to tornadoes (the south) are also more impoverished, and subsequently, you are more likely to have more trailer parks there.

It is so sad.My heart goes out to these people.trailers are easy prey as they are not as secure as a house.In my area on must have tie downs for the Insurance to be in effect,still they are prone.After reading of the tornadoes I realized even with 17" of snow on the ground we here in NorthEast Ohio are not so bad off.
