Speaking from experience. I have way more fear living on the coast with hurricanes then I did living in the prairies with tornadoes. I live here though because my family is here, my fiance is here, my fiances family is here(who I love dearly) and this is just "home".

Do I shake in fear when hurricane season comes rolling in? Yep! And I am not even in an area that gets the full impact of hurricane season, I am an hour away from coastline. We get the tail of them but its enough there is damage.

I came here because I had to for Uncle Sam. Like I said before I didn't even know that tornadoes occured here. What a surprise that was! I thought they were more of a mid-western thing. I am about 4 hours from the Atlantic and 4 hours from the Gulf. Not near enough for me to really be afraid of that. I do hate it here and I had wanted to move to Missouri. I still WANT to but I am not sure if I will just because of the twister factor.

Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.

Like I said before, you're more likely to get hit by a bus or to step out the open door of a plane at altitude than you are to get hit by a big tornado. Even here, where we get some monsters, we don't get those EF4's and EF5's all THAT often. The rest is mostly hail damage and broken branches.

Shawnee I have lived in Texas for most of my life.
I have yet to experience a tornado and even if I did I would not move.
Here in Texas we make a lot of jokes about Oklahoma.
The people there remind me of texans. they are polite, kind, hardy , and brave.
This recent disaster highlights the positive qualities of the people in that state.
Just dont tell any Texans I posted this. Shalom

DB don't worry about it. We're so much like Texans because Texas' real name is Baja Oklahoma. Shalom y'all!

DBA, you are SO busted

Oklahoma does have some beautiful areas. I've gone up there many times to rent a cabin in one of the state parks to go on long day hikes.
