You are correct, rgrjoe. Tornadoes do suck, literally. However, a tornado only lasts for a few minutes whereas one of those hurricanes can last for days.
I've only experienced one "tropical depression" left over from a hurricane a couple of years ago. I would think it would be a whole lot easier to get out of the way of a tornado, than one of those massive hurricanes.
It would probably only take one hurricane for me to want to move. You're a braver man than me.
