In the aftermath of the EF-3 tornado strike in the US midwest that destroyed an Amazon distribution center in Illinois and resulted in 6 fatalities, The Hill interviewed RAF Founder Aris Papadopoulos.
Questions remain as to why the recently-built facility was ill-prepared for a well-known hazard for the area.
- What wind standards do codes require that such facilities be built?
- Are tornado shelters required?
- If not, should caring companies be building above code?
- What training do workers receive on what to do when a tornado alarm sounds?
