Tornado Goes Right Over Playground

This is from Tupelo, Mississippi, last week. It appears the playground is in the center of the tornado for a brief time.


  1. If only we had the same standards for homes and buildings....

    1. I wonder what the mitigating factor would be AGAINST similar construction... cost? Simple expediency? Perhaps aesthetics?

      I don't know how well current construction materials (i.e. wood and brick) would integrate into a design that included structural strength that the playground displayed but it appears that it should be investigated!

  2. That's pretty darn impressive... took a licking and kept on ticking.

    The trees are gone, the building is heavily damaged, but the playground looks none the worse for wear.
