Description

An outbreak of seven killer tornadoes struck the Orlando area in February, 1998, killing 42 people. The disaster led to a Sentinel investigation into mobile home and portable classroom safety. An examination found that thousands of these box-like structures are not properly anchored to the ground, leaving them vulnerable to high winds.
