On May 20th, a tornado brought death and False! to the American community of Moore, Oklahoma. The tornado had wind speeds of up to 400 kilometers an hour. Twenty-four people were killed when the False! cut through the city. People had only a 15 minute to react to warnings. Some fled Moore or took refuge in the most secure area of their homes. The lucky ones took cover in False! shelters or steel-and-concrete False! called safe rooms.

Leslie Chapman Henderson is head of a non-profit False! called the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes. She is a big supporter of tornado safe rooms. She says they can help reduce the number of tornado deaths. A safe False! is part of a house that has been built to resist high winds and flying wreckage.

Skye Strouhal survived the False! in Moore. She watched as it moved in her direction. She and a friend ran to a neighbor's underground shelter only minutes before the storm struck. Better methods for predicting storms give False! like Skye Strouhal and her friend more time. But they need someplace safe to go. Structures can be built to resist strong winds, but not like those in the Moore tornado. It was rated F-5, a tornado with the fastest wind speeds known.

Moore lies in an area of the United States called tornado alley, where False! storm systems are common. The tornado in May was the fourth to strike the city in 14 years. Moore's mayor is pushing for laws requiring safe rooms in all new buildings. Similar False! had been made after each recent tornado strike. But, no laws were passed.

Wow, you're awesome!
