...it would make quite a fucking mess. That one makes me nervous. Nuke fuel would be shredded and strewn absolutely everywhere. Radiation MESS. There are reactors similar in design to Fukushima-Daichii, fantastic. What to do?
I don't think you realize that the containers the nuclear fuel rods and waste are in are made of huge slabs of 9 foot thick concrete, making them fucking bomb proof. Fuckishima only happened because it was shaken by I believe an 8.9 earthquake.
No cuz if you you look at the aftermath photos from the two huge ones the other day (record-setting, might I add) you can see that there's only a small chance that most of a nuclear plant would hold up.
When people build a nuclear plant in an area where tornadoes or tsunamis happen they don't fuck around. If people can withstand a tornado in their homemade shelter, than a nuclear plant definitely can.
You're being a dumbass. You're implying they already haven't thought of this, when tornados happen dozens of times every year in the midwest. The concrete structures are built to withstand enormous force

Again, you're fucking dumb. Look at the first photo I posted. It is from Alabama's record setting tornado the other day. IF a mile wide tornado ripped right through a reactor building, all the wind tunnel force would blast it apart. And cooling would be fucking GONE, and then its the same shit. Worst case, radioactive pieces get tossed around.
You're dumb too. I was speaking worst-case winds. But a good twister will rip through and take the backup diesel generators and without any kind of power (yeah didn't you hear? nuke plants need electricity at all times) there is a meltdown. Any scientist knows that.
SO to sum it up in a more probable manner for you:
This is the aftermath of Hiroshima's City Hall, a fairly strong building made of 1 foot concrete slabs, when the U.S.A dropped a nuclear bomb, one of the biggest of all time which had an impact of 35 tons per square meter, on Hiroshima:
If you believe that 200 mph winds would destroy a building made of 9 foot concrete
slabs, and also like I said all the reactors are kept underground along with the waste,
It seems reasonable to assume that because there are different safety standards for different types of buildings, a nuclear power plant would have far higher standards than those houses that got torn to shreds.

Wiley Miller: "Well skiing is kinda like partying, you swerve to and fro, hit shit, and sometimes you fall. You can be hurting the next day and say i’ll never do that again, yet a few days later your back at the same stupid antics you were doing."
you are digging yourself deeper and deeper. would an engineer not design a nuclear plant to survive 10x the worst case scenario? a tornado is not going to tear through a nuclear plant and screw us all.. ever.

you people are literally calling each other dumbasses over and over again because somebody made a stupid thread about twisters. you are not meteorologists and you are not nuclear engineers, so stop pretending to be.

Well, you'd think they would, but they do not plan for the 10x worst case because we still make up the reasonably worst case. Do you know what the word unprecedented means? You think your so safe. So did fucking Japan, even Chernobyl.
