There was only one story that truly captured the heart of your News Cut host this week -- the tornado in Hugo. And so this week's News Cut Week in Review Quiz is all about tornadoes.
In a never-ending quest to see the first perfect score on the News Cut quiz in my lifetime, I've even added some true-false questions. After you take the quiz, report back here.
As always, good luck. We're all counting on you.
As the first one through I'm setting the bar pretty low. 11/15. I'm so embarrassed. And my time was horrible too (but due to a kidtastrophe involving popcorn).
14/15...woohoo almost there
9/15 and I only did that well because of some very lucky guesses.
11/15, Alison? That may be the best ever, actually.
just don't follow me or my son in the event of a tornado.
That was good? Wow! I think I played the first or second time you had the quiz but not since then.
I can't believe that a house built to withstand tornado scale winds is only 10% more than a house without that protection or additional stability measures taken during construction (whatever the case may be). I'd like to see what all they based these claims on to be honest.
Started off with a bang and ended so terribly that I am too embarassed to report my score; sorry Mr. Collins. I blame it on my concentration breaking when I stopped to make the comment above. :)
I had a really important followup question, but it has apparently been blown out of my mind.
Ah - it wasn't a question, but noting that tornadoes came up in a discussion with a neighbor last night. He claimed there's a higher propensity for the north metro to get hit, while the southern suburbs rarely do. Where did you find the numbers about the north side's likelihood for tornadoes vs. nationwide?

It was on the CityData page for Hugo. I haven't checked other cities to see if their info is also included
