On the scarcity of basements in Louisiana

I grew up on the outskirts of tornado country, so for me, basements mean safety, especially in summer time. For a long time after I moved away from home, visiting someplace without a basement put me on edge. For instance, one summer I was visiting a girlfriend's parent's had a ranch house in Louisiana, without a basement. I expressed my discomfort, she'd heard my stories of practice and real tornado alarms in school. She then pointed out that I wasn't in tornado country, and could rest easy.

178 dead in Alabama. It's not tornado country. Please, I just want to hear someone say that this isn't climate change, and that this is God's punishment for gays in America.
