Rather interesting that is was the "trucks" that went flying rather than the cars.

Makes sense. Trucks are less aerodynamic and the weight is not distributed as evenly. Probably easy for the bed of the truck to catch wind, move around, and lift due to being so light in relation to the front of the truck. Once that happens lift off is not far behind. Whereas, with a car, the air just blows over the top of it. I’d imagine if the winds get strong enough to move cars too, ones with windows rolled down would be the first to fly.

Or it could be that the wind was more intense in the section where the trucks were grouped together. A tornado path can be a strange thing.

Happened in Jefferson City, Mo. Not too far from me(globally speaking😁). Our version of a California mudslide or fire. Of course a pickup truck was involved!😊

Probably.

And if memory serves me well as far as falling down unexpected holes in the ground is concerned, Corvettes are particularly susceptible to that 8)

My first thought is to imagine being involved with the insurance claim process. I'm sure that says something about me as a person :?

And mine reading that is that I too would wonder if and when my claim (and reimbursement) would come through ... which doesn't say anything bad of you as a person ;)

(I remember in fact hoping that none of the victims have their insurance with one of the big names I would strongly discommend to anyone who asks...)

There was an outbreak of tornados near where I live recently. I was actually outside starting a fire when the hook echo of the cell which produced them passed overhead. I could see several rotations and gyrations whirling in it, but they had not become funnels. It was a little freaky and kind of fascinating.
