Coming from Florida (hurricane prone) and having moved to Colorado (tornado alley) I can personally say I prefer hurricanes to tornadoes. At least with hurricanes you get a week warning. It turns from tropical depression to tropical storm and then goes from there. With tornadoes all you get is sirens. You might get lucky and hear on a news cast that there are storm cells that could produce tornadoes.
Also with hurricanes, you can plan a hurricane party.
Back in the day when Hurricane David hit Daytona Beach, my dad had one **** of a party.
