Which evangelist was it who picked and choose when he wanted to say the natural disaster being discussed was a sign from God to punish the people the storm hit?

Is that only done for areas of the country he didn't like?

A pre-dawn twister flattened entire blocks of homes in a small Illinois town Wednesday as violent storms ravaged the Midwest and South, killing at least 12 people in three states.

Winds also ripped through the country music mecca of Branson, Mo., damaging some of the city's famous theaters just days before the start of the busy tourist season.

The tornado that blasted Harrisburg in southern Illinois, killing six, was an EF4, the second-highest rating given to twisters based on damage. Scientists said it was 200 yards wide with winds up to 170 mph.

I am from Harrisburg and it was a nightmare what it did to our town.

I can't imagine,I haven't been through one but seen the aftermath in person, been in a half dozen hurricanes though.
Then there is this:
HARVEST, Ala.(AP)— Cody Stewart is done owning a home for a little while. He has lost his house to tornadoes twice in 10 months.

"A killer twister wiped out his neighborhood in the epic Alabama storms April 27, causing Stewart $40,000 worth of damage that forced him to temporarily move in with his parents. In his house for less than two months with repairs still incomplete, another tornado hit again Friday, ripping off the roof, slinging it into the backyard and leaving the walls bowed outward".

This time, the damage is beyond repair.

After the damage, some areas are going to get snow.

It's going to be a long season.
