Reflections on US tornadoes: Are natural disasters judgments from God?

This is a sticky question, and one I’ve struggled with.

Were all of these churches somehow in need of judgment? Despite the Scriptures bandied about, I have significant problems thinking of all tornadoes (and natural disasters in general) as the judgment of God. I prefer the approach of C. S. Lewis: God has made this world a dangerous place in part because only in the context of danger do eternal issues of character come to the fore.

What do you think? How do you reconcile this?
