I think there needs to be a full scale investigation as to why a group of boys were on a hike when the weather was bad, yes they had no idea there would be a tornado, but there were alerts bad weather was coming. There were 25 adults there and not one of them were killed or injured, just the youngest? Jennifer you are right on about a storm bunker, they have all these people there and they cannot build a storm shelter? I think the boy scouts were true heroes helping there follow scouts and should be commended.I however wonder what the 25 adults were doing when they ignored bad weather was approaching. Government shouldn’t have to tell people when you are caring for kids that common sense should tell you that if bad weather is approaching you get ready before a tornado arrives.

I saw on the news last night that in fact a tornado warning was in effect for where they were camping. Now whether they knew that or not I don't know. I think given they are lucky that only 4 lost their lives. I feel so sad for the parents of those 4 boys - so tragic.
