Last week while we were watching the aftermath of another Midwest tornado, my wife commented how “these things always seem to hit the little towns and never the big cities.” Well, the folks in Billings, Montana will pause to disagree.
Sure, we’ve seen tornadoes hit big cities before. Oklahoma City. Salt Lake City. Lubbock, Texas. Omaha. But the storms tend to find the smaller towns more often. Either way, it’s a good reminder that when severe weather happens it needs to be taken seriously.
And if you think you are safe inside a large arena, watch this video of the roof being torn off Billings 12,000 seat arena and consider what it would have been like to be in there at the time. Thankfully, there was no event going on at the time.
