Dream symbols - surviving a tornado

THE DREAM - I dream a lot about tornadoes and in these dreams I usually die. However the other night I had a dream in which I was in a very unfamiliar place, some highway in the middle of nowhere with no one else around (whereas my other dreams had been in my house / school / or a friends house) and a very large tornado was approaching. I ran into this circular factory building and took cover. The tornado came and it ripped off the building's roof but passed over me. At the end of the dream I was still alive.
