    Have a look to this picture.
    All made of thin wood, paper and some other crap.
    What do you expect then?

    My comment can prevent disasters in future if houses will build using normal materials.

    Apparently you do not live in the USA, and are trying to express that you and the country you live in are much more intelligent than the citizens of the USA. Maybe you are and maybe you aren't....but I lean to the "You Aren't".


    What I can tell from your post is that you are a very insensitive SOB. I'm really surprised that you didn't say that those poor folks should have expected this outcome living the way they did.


    You should be thinking that there but for the grace of God go I.........


    Someday you will answer to God for your arrogant attitude.

    Curious how Mr Maury feels about this use of his copyrighted photo.

    Normal materials means houses should be make of solid bricks and/or blocks... and no ugly siding at least. But your mafia intoduced you this crap for fantastic $$$.

    I've seen reinforced concrete masonry unit built buildings go down in an f3 tornado, this one that hit OK yesterday was an EF5. The only place safe from something like that is underground, then you gotta hope the storm doesn't drop a semi or another building on top of you.

    I heard 317mph on the news today. The tornado actually pulled the grass out of the ground. I'm a CWI / structural inspector. The enemy of a structure in this case is uplift. So tell me ansvel, what type of home would you design that would be affordable to most and still survive an F5???????????

    Authorities are saying the energy unleashed on the town exceeded that of the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

    Do you really think it's possible to make an affordable home that will survive that?

    I see you live in Markham, a suburb of Ontario, Canada.

    All the houses there seem to be built of brick. Good luck with them in an earthquake. And they likely would have suffered heavy damage in this tornado. Even well constructed schools did not survive.

    And mafia? You got anything to back that up?

    Even a brick or concrete structure needs a roof. What kind of roof would you suggest? Mind you this tornado pulled up streets so what kind of streets should us stupid Americans put in?

    You've heard of the phrase "Ugly American"? Meet an "Ugly Canadian".

    Part of the EF rating used is based on how far the winds would throw a normal car. EF5 is one mile.


    A reinforced concrete roof "might" withstand the winds, but debris or download from debris exceeding snowload may cause collapse.

    OK Mr. Structural engineer, tell us how you deal with that with out spending $300 a square foot?

    Current residential averages $135/sf with today's inflated material costs. Yes "INFLATED"...a word (inflation) our media and gubmit refuses to use.

    Buy any food, gas, raw materials lately?

    LOL, get this...

    For Markham, Ontario, Canada: "The average selling price of a home is slightly up to $599,582..."

    That's $617,510 US.

    The average home price in Moore, Oklahoma is $118,250 US.

    The only reason there was not more devastation, and it is horrific, is that homes in Oklahoma are built to standards to withstand significant wind damage. But an F5 tornado???? You have no common sense at all if you believe a home can reasonably be built that can hold up to that amount of force. Sod and pavement were ripped from the ground!!! Show me a house that can hold up to that.

    I have driven through Moore dozens of times. These were not shoddily built homes.

    Well guys, I live in the same shity house like you do, because I do not have any choices.
