The last 3 houses I've lived in (Ft. Gordon, GA; Leesville, LA; and now Ft. Bragg, NC) none of the houses have or had basements. Ft. Bragg, NC is probably the worst of the three because since I've been stationed there there have been two tornados and one hurriance (Sandy I think?) but only the edge of the hurricane hit where we were.
The last tornado was a couple weeks ago, right after I left to come back here to Afghanistan. The wife said it came out of nowhere all of a sudden and ended up literally knocking down one of the three large pecan trees in the backyard.
She had herself, the baby, the important documents, and the animals (as best she could with them) in the inner bathroom, the only room with no windows!
I can't wait to PCS next summer!
