The tornado that ravaged Oklahoma on Monday left severe devastation on its wake. It has killed 24 people, including 10 children. Ripping at 200 to 210 mph, it also wrecked about 2,400 homes in Moore and Oklahoma City.
According to the National Weather Service, the Oklahoma tornado was 1.3-mile wide when it hit the town of More. And as it moved, it directly affected an estimated 10,000 people.
Following the disaster, a report said that the mayor of the ravaged city of Moore, Glenn Lewis, pushes a law reinforcing safe rooms or storm shelters in new homes. And as he stated, they would try to get it passed as soon as possible.
The said proposed bill would apply on single-family and multifamily dwellings. But though there was no mention of it covering schools, a separate report shared that 100 and more schools in Oklahoma were provided by the state funds for safe rooms. Nonetheless, Plaza Towers Elementary, where 7 kids died from the tornado, and another school were said without storm shelters.

Given how strong and fatal a tornado could be, safe rooms are indeed needed. But besides passing a law requiring storm shelters and implementing other recovery plans, attention must also be given to the looming mold problem.
The flooding that the Oklahoma tornado brought would surely lead to mold infestation very soon. That’s because dampness provides spores the ideal environment to grow. And with that comes several health risks.
