I find it hard to even think about it. They had a relatively large warning, and did exactly what they were supposed to do. It was an area that has been hit multiple times in the recent past, so shelters were numerous, and up to date. And yet all that didn't matter. The movie Twister has a scene where an actor calls an F5 tornado as "The finger of God", and it seems accurate given the images. Nothing can protect against something like that.

I have had a close call, the worst outbreak in FL history was where I lived, remember those storms acutely, the most terrifying ones of my life. 41 people died that night.
