(short rant) Don't use "thanks to" to show cause unless someone would actually give thanks to the occurrence.
Out of the question: The town was in ruins, thanks to a tornado that killed 14 cows and three people.
Permissible: The crops were fine up north, thanks to plenty of rain in the growing season.
