In one way, my city is the opposite. They have their list of authorized contractors (spell that collusion and price fixing). After Sandy, they let everyone in.

S-U-C-K-E-R is right. It's funny about the big deal they made about gas stations gouging prices but ignored the contractors. A plumbing job that was estimated just after Sandy (in writing) at $4500 could not be had for less than $7500 when the they realized what they could get away with. The original guy, with the written estimate? Never seemed to call back.

Tornado is sort of the opposite: extreme localized destruction (obliteration?). Hopefully, neighbors, unscathed, to help out.
"Superstorm": extraordinarily widespread damage. No place around to go to because it's all uninhabitable shells.

Tornadoes, though, happen a lot. With a lot less warning. And deadlier. I'd rather watch any of it on TV than go through it again.
