According to today's CNN.com:
"There will be widespread rain and thundersorms in southeastern Kansas and eastern Oklahoma, and violent tornadoes are possible, according to the National Weather Service. The storms will also be capable of producing large hail and damaging straight-line winds."
How do they know these tornadoes are violent? They may be simply misunderstood. The tornadoes might not have had a good upbringing. I mean, they're still tornaodes, and tornadoes must act like tornadoes to identify themselves with other tornadoes. So, if a tornado flattens your small town,
maybe it just hasn't received good direction.
