If I could pick up the town of Joplin and move it far away from the moderate risk, I would.

If you know that we are in a Tornado Watch, don't do your Wal-Mart or Home Depot shopping. If the sirens sound, don't go outside with your camera or phone to take a "viral video" of a tornado bearing down on you. Joplin had several Darwin Award winners. Don't be one yourself.
