Not to sound heartless, but
You live in tornado alley, you expect tornadoes.
You live in a flood plain, you expect floods.
You live on a fault line, you expect earthquakes.
Am I wrong?
You may be right, but you certainly sound heartless.
Regardless if you "expect" a tornado, losing your house, all your belongings, and in many cases a family member, even a child, is among the worst things that can happen to a human being.
Pointing out that people live in dangerous areas in the aftermath of a devastating catastrophe makes you look like a real *******.
And I like you, diah. That was just really callous and uncalled for.
Imagine a terrible blizzard that collapses the roof of your family home and kills someone in your family. What would you say to someone who told you you should have "expected" that blizzard.
