Trivia After the Las Vegas tornadoes, Andy mentions that they were as strong as "Oklahoma City in 1999." Later in the movie when several stock videos of tornadoes are shown as the storm approaches Chicago, the video of the large tornado with the small satellite tornado to the left of it is the actual tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area in 1999. It is often referred to as the Bridge Creek Tornado due to the horrific damage it caused in that community, and at the time and still to this day it had the highest winds recorded in a tornado in history.

Goofs When power is restored to the mall, the escalators start up. Modern escalators do not start up on their own after a power cut. They have to be manually reset. This is a safety feature. See more »
