Woman seeks shelter in Mobile Home(?)

From an Accuweather article on March 13. 2006

"...A twister reported to be a half mile wide cut a 16 mile long path of destruction through the town of Sedalia, Missouri, killing a woman as she sought shelter in her mobile home. Tornadoes also touched down in central Illinois and Arkansas, but there were no reports of injuries..."

Today's lesson: Mobile homes are not made with the structural elements necessary to protect you from tornadoes. Seek a shelter that you cannot push over by hand.
