Film makers do this in disaster movies because having a sympathetic character with a story arc makes the film have an identifiable element for audiences to latch on to. If the film was just 2 hours of bad weather, destruction and people running from random natural disasters with no human story it'd be even more mind numbing than it already is.

I actually don't mind this film though, it's decent enough, far better than Emmerich's following film, '10,000 BC', which is probably one of the worst films i've ever clapped eyes on.
Well yes I realise this! But there are loads of alternatives to the style/story adopted in this film which I can assure anyone who hasn' t seen it is absolute tosh to anyone with a brain.
