#1 Shock will tend to make you concentrate on the "immediate" IE HER house...HER belongings...its human nature chap. Nothing to do with being selfish or ungrateful.

Are you freakin' kidding me #(removed comment)? Your life as you know it changes in an instant. How can you be expected to think rationally? On top of that of course the first thing you see is the home you've lived in is now in shambles around you.

In most cases your car is destroyed, you can't even get to a change of clothes. What do you do when you literally have nothing but the clothes on your back?
How do you cope? What feelings and thoughts take over?

I tell you what, it's easy to pass judgement from behind the safety and comfort of your keyboard.

If you listen carefully at 0:16 mark, she yells "DAD!". What would you expect of a child/teenager?

#1 Have you ever heard of things like love, joy, peace, generosity, courage...
#2 Human nature, yes precisely, it's pathetic, there is nothing good in it!
#3 Yes indeed, it is very easy, it's also very easy to be a wonderful human being when everything goes well, strip away that ease and comfort and you can see what people are really like underneath!

#(removed comment),#6 since you are the same person .. fuck off..., yes what you are saying could be actual true, for a robot... maybe. How could you say that, they sound like genuine nice people who lost everything in a moment,did you hear those sounds of the house being destroyed?? i mean that was horifing. Also if you listen the whole video, they do sound concerned about their neighbors.
i don't want to happen anything bad to you or your loved ones, but how would you react in this situation? I doubt that you would get out of your basement and imediatly say... well fuck my house, all my belongings, let's go people!!! let's help our neighbors!! all this in a couple a minutes after your house, was riped apart! If you think, that you would react different, well you are going to have a surprise sometime in the future.

I love how Dmitry has reached some level of transcendence far beyond that of us normal human beings. :|

one way to save, if a place with often tornado-event, build-up sort of a bird-cage for the whole yard, and fixed on the roof-top pinnacle point: not a very dense-in iron to ruin the landscape, or create uncomfortable heart, or claustrophobia, but an effective net-alike one.

It's after moments like these that people give life its real value. You lost everything but kept the most important: your life! Life is precious!

Besides: Why don't they build stronger houses? Concrete? Steel?

Nothing to wonder. People who killed the majority of Indians and others drowned with alcohol and drugs deserve that. Earth does not want them there.

My opinion for what it's worth is that idiots like #(removed comment)#6 oh and now #16 are just trying to be controversial. By giving them word play you just amuse them. Keep it very short type "Knob" and mark them down. Job done ;)

Is *anybody* else at all bothered that this is under the Awesome category? This is tragic. I feel bad for anyone who has to go through anything like this.
