Tornadoes are no doubt one of the most deadly and chaotic natural disasters in history. Defined simply as a violently rotating column of cloud, with its usual wind speed which is about less than 110 miles per hour and can attain more than 300 miles per hour; it can wreak havoc on anything it comes close to. Houses with weak structures can quickly succumb to the strong wind activity that tornadoes exhibit and this is very dangerous to residents but all they can do is stay in a safe place like a basement and wait for the storm to pass, so to speak. Tornado damage is very devastating no matter where it hits.
This article from mlive.com discusses what happens after a tornado:
