Good question...
I can’t imagine living in Tornedo Alley and not have an under ground bunker with supplies in the back yard. The kids in school went into the hallway for protection, they say...don’t think that would make me feel safe.
Maybe legislation requiring developers to put in bunkers when they build houses???

The super cells are blowing up big. All of Dallas Fort Worth will be in for trouble in a couple of hours.

Both Moore, OK, and Joplin, MO, were devastated in 2011.

The only cells that could affect us are down near Brownwood right now. Everything else is at least a county west of us. Cells P0, J2, and U2 are not a threat to Ft. Worth if they continue in the direction they are going (NNW).

They have been having storm watch. Now helicopter feed showing devastation at and around hospital. heading to the school.

With the “narrow” path of a tornado - I wonder if it might be best to be in a vehicle so you can just move sideways from it as it comes. Of course you have other traffic, and if you do get caught - your car probably isn’t much help unles you can drive it into a ditch or something.

So much devastation in the Moore area. Horrible destruction of buildings and vehicles. Traffic backed up badly. Kids still trapped in a school.

There was a mention of the hospital in Moore being severely damaged. I didn’t want to write it but someone said they heard about it.

Joplins hospital was leveled in 2011.

In this kind of weather — warm, humid, unstable — cells can spring up in a matter of a few minutes.

They can spring up and be doing damage before the local weathermen even get on the TV to warn people.

You can't build a basement here and keep it dry. It's unpossible without massive expense, even if you were to legislate it.

My groundwater table is very shallow and I live at the edge of an underground stream.

I can’t imagine going through that a second time.

It won't get better with dark. Cell formation may peak around midnight. I say that from experience as a storm-spotter for NWS.

I just tested my emergency lighting.

This has been the subject of much debate. The reality is, with enough warning and a slow-moving storm, with someone with knowledge of local roads and an understanding of the storm movement, yes, it's quite possible to evade a storm in a vehicle.

From a public messaging perspective though, given the possibility for accidents/traffic jams, and the fact that you're infinitely worse off in any vehicle than you are even in a mobile home, it would be a bad idea to advise evacuation.
