    "You never want to say it but we're going to say it right now," KFOR's chief meteorologist Mike Morgan said. "This is May 3rd all over again as far as the intensity of this tornado and where it is heading." He later added, "You gotta be below ground. Interior closet or bathroom is not going to do it. Or get out of its way ... do not be in your car near the tornado, drive away from it if you have no option to save your life."  
    "Abandon where you are if you cannot get below ground." comment was also made
    MSNBC's reporter then characterized that as:
    But he said, and people have reported on this that they were told, 'If you can't get under ground today, get in your car and hightail it as far away from this thing as possible' ..
    These comments were made right as the tornado was hitting.  It's crazy to think the whole town would pick up, jump in their cars, and drive away. It is too late to get away, especially if you get caught in traffic or have a traffic accident due to crazy drivers.   Many more people would have died if they'd been out in the streets.
