At least 30 tornadoes were reported between late Friday and early Saturday across Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee, resulting in deaths and widespread property damage, according to CNN.

Whilst this is a good generous thing to do. I still fail to understand why people choose to live in these places, tornados happen every year at particular times in certain places like tornado alley right? But people still choose to live there? Anyone on here from tornado alley? Can you explain why you live there and face this danger every year? I genuinely don't get why you would.
Could ask the people of any number of cities in California that have burned down repeatedly the same question.

I was born in California but have lived most of my life in the Midwest. Number of tornadoes I’ve been through in 30 years? Zero. I’ve seen two funnel clouds in my life time. But never an actual on-the-ground, damage causing tornado. Literally zero. Meanwhile, I know people in California who have lost their homes three times in the last 5 years due to wildfires.

There is no TRULY risk-free place to live. Droughts, fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes. You have a risk no matter where you are.

The interesting thing…statistically speaking, is that despite living in a VERY tornado-prone area…my odds of actually seeing a tornado are surprisingly low. I probably have a better chance of winning the lottery.

Will all of the above people unhappy with Apple's disaster donations and TC be voting with their wallets for their next phone/tablet/computer purchases?
They won’t because they are all talk and won’t donate themselves, and will still use Apple.
