You'll notice it's flat, too.

Tornadoes seem to be shifting from the middle of America to the Southeast.

I wonder how many tornado deaths are caused by poor building quality and or non-mask-wearing-safety-is-for-pussies mentality vs we just get really bad tornadoes here?

Texas is where they build houses inside the potential water collection areas created by dams. But yeah, flooding is bad there. It's not the leadership.

A double page picture in Time Magazine showed an entire block flattened after Hurricane Andrew. Notice across the street were houses built (I am told) by Habitat for Humanity. Houses across the street still standing.

Upon closer examination, required blocking was missing where all walls met in corners. So of course those homes fell down. 85% of all problems are directly traceable to top management. Another example had one noticed houses across the street and still standing.

Same kind of questions also exposed murder of seven Challenger and seven Columbia astronauts, trashing of a $328million Mars Climate Orbiter spacecraft, Saddam's WMDs, a pathetic response by all top administration officials on 11 September, Fukushima Daiichi and Three Mile Island, and even a Boeing 737Max. All directly traceable to top management who failed to do their job.

Homes built inside reservoirs - directly traceable to code enforcement officiers (who were denied power to do their job) and builders who knew better. More examples of top management with a Donald Trump attitude.

Texas has no codes.

Houston was built underwater, with no drainage ditches.

Well there's none in Spring, TX, and none in Rowlett, nor Weatherford, as far as I know.
