Emergency Broadcast System

just had the 3rd (unusual for NorCal) tornado alert, gotta love the lack of local knowledge, from pronunciation of the areas affected to "the safest place is in a basement" er, this is California - doubt if even 10% of the homes in this state have a basement! the next best advice is to be in an inside hall and if outside, in a car or in a mobile home (after seeing the aftermath of both tornado's and earthquakes on mobile home parks I figure who ever controls things does not like mobile homes) is to "lay down in a ditch and cover your head" now think about this for a second, tornado's are spawned by severe thunder storms and the ditches tend to be filled with cold water?
