Toyota Tundra Meets EF5 Tornado – It STILL RUNS!
The tornadoes that hit Oklahoma in the summer of 2013 were a stunning reminder on how fragile life is. Fortunately for one Tundra owner, himself and his family survived the storm. The truck? Well, that’s another story.
It is clear to see that the Tundra took a beating from the storm. The fact it is still running amazes us. If you have a moment, check out the thread on TundraTalk.net from the survivor/owner. The harrowing story of him not knowing what happened to his family while the tornado raged on is amazing. We are glad he survived, yet we feel for him since he just paid off his 2011 Rock Warrior SIX days prior to the storm. Major UGH!
Now that the destruction in Oklahoma is in the clean up stages for the most part, it got us thinking. How much will the property damages be? We found this news story and did some math. The story says there were 13,000 structures lost, if we were to extrapolate and assume 3 vehicles per structure lost, that would be 40,000 cars. Assuming $25,000 lost per car, that’s $1 billion (and that’s probably high). Now that’s crazy!
What do you think of his story? What’s the worst damage that happened to a vehicle you have owned?
