This isn't exactly the most startling revelation of the year:
In fact, two-thirds of the 34 people killed in the catastrophic March 2 tornadoes in Indiana and Kentucky died in mobile homes. Such housing makes up only 14 percent of the housing in Kentucky and 6 percent in Indiana.
[. . .]
Experts on severe weather say the disproportionate death toll in mobile and manufactured housing isn't surprising: The National Severe Storms Laboratory has found that occupants of such dwellings, which are lighter and less well-anchored, are 10 to 20 times more likely to be killed in tornadoes than those in conventional homes.
I was trailer park trash for a few months after the Army, living with two high school buddies in a scuzzy trailer park just off Coldwater near Glenbrook. Maybe it was partly because of the mobile homes' reputation, but it felt scary there even during a mild rainstorm.
OK, time for the best-ever tornado joke here: Why is a tornado like a divorce in (pick state you want to dis)? Answer: Somebody's gonna lose a trailer,
