Busy Season Problems: Auditing During a Tornado

You may have heard that yesterday, "as many as a dozen" tornadoes sorta had their way with the Dallas-Fort Worth, destroying homes and damaging property. Thankfully there have been no deaths reported. 

Usually when inclement weather threatens a city, there is some kind of advance notice. For all their short-comings, weather (wo)men typically get these severe cases correct, thus giving everyone plenty of time to prepare appropriately. HOWEVER!

We always hear about those old coots in Florida who flat-out REFUSE to leave their homes despite the fact that a Category 5 could put the courtesy golf cart through their front window.
