Did anyone see all those children get killed in that high school from that tornado ?? They were showing footage and the school was hit the hardest in the gym, where all the kids went for cover ! Sooooo sad. I feel so bad for all those parents.

Every mother's nightmare. I did see it, and I can't believe they put all the students there, they should know that is one of the least safe places you could be during a tornado. When I was in school we always lined up a down a hallway that didn't hav e any windows. I might try to sue the school honestly for not having a proper safety plan in place.

Come to think about it, yeah we actually had to hind under our desks with our book over our heads. I think they freaked out at the last minute .

Oh yeah the books over the head, we did that too. We thought it was silly at the time, but look at what can happen if you're not prepared. It is so sad. :(

I think that's so very sad! I'm in S.C. and they were sending out alerts all last night about the same storm cells, but we didn't have nearly anything as they did in AL. My heart goes out to all those affected by this. A parent never wants to go before their kids... sad. :(

I know it's so sad, I can't imagine being one of those parents. My heart sank when I saw it on the news this morning... I complain a lot about our weather with the cold and snow and everything, but really I would much rather be snowed-in than have to go through something that scary... piratesmermaid and anyone else who lives in those areas, I can so see how you feel...

This might be a dumb question, but do schools in the south have bas____nt/boiler rooms? That's where we went when we had tornado drills.

I know in coastal areas, no b/c of the water levels (being below). Ash2- too cool! I'm in Charleston. We may be moving though to Charlotte, NC. Hopefully we'll know for sure by next Monday. Did you grow up there?

I worked as a teacher in Moore, OK, in 1999 when the F5 tornado came through. Kelley Elem. was demolished. None of our schools had storm shelters. We went to inside walls of the school and crouched down if we heard the sirens. Thankfully when the F5 rolled through it was after school hours, so no children were in the school. The building however was completed devastated. I have no doubt that many, many children would have been hurt and killed if it had been during the school day. When they rebuilt it, they put in a safe room.

i was very sad to hear that i live in AL and i was watching the weather and trying to decide wehter to go p/u my son from school or to wait and see (due to the time it was to be in my part of the state he should have had time to get home but it was getting close) anyway then i heard that school was not going to dismiss due to the arrival time of storm and school dismissal time they were holding the students over then they broke in on the TV with the report of the school in Enterprise that was struck and i got up and grabbed my keys and got my son home .........i understand they didnt want the kids on the road at the time of the storm hitting but they could have decided earlier to dismiss school......
