in Sri Lanka we don't have the technology to warn events such as tornadoes since they occur very suddenly for very short time in a localized area. But people should be aware of how dangerous a tornado can be.

Hope if arrangements could be made by the disaster managment center to obtain information and give alerts like the Tsunami to avoid casualities

I think it's difficult to predict this type of weather
