So far, we have been lucky when it comes to NASCAR, NFL and MLB and have never had a major tornado strike during an event. Yes, a tornado struck the Georgia Dome during a basketball game ( http://youtu.be/mkfu4I9W2T8 ) but that was an F-1 tornado and an indoor facility. Even so, it was mighty scary for the people inside.
AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions works with stadiums across the U.S. to provide the maximum amount of notice possible but some facilities do not have enough sheltering facilities.
If there is ever a thousand-fatality tornado, this is how it would likely occur: A major tornado (think Joplin or Greensburg) striking a full stadium.
