That's what the lady at the post office told me as we talked about the tornadoes just reported in another state yesterday. She must not know about the one that wiped out a small town and killed several people just 30 or so miles from here in the past few weeks. She also must not know that tornadoes can happen anywhere in the United States and do happen in many other countries.
There is also a misconcpetion that tornadoes only happen in rural areas. This may myth may largely be due to the fact that the central part of the United States, where tornadoes are most common, includes many rural areas.
So no matter where you live, now is a good time to brush up on what to do in a tornado.
