US scientists hope to 'tornado-proof' homes

Researchers seek to come up with recommendations for building tornado-resistant houses using simulation models.

    This year's tornado season in the United States has been one of the worst on record.

    Now scientists are trying to understand more about how they form by simulating mini-tornadoes.

    Researchers hope to come up with recommendations for governments and construction companies to build tornado-resistant houses.
