Are You At Risk For Tornadoes?
Most people don’t realize it, but more than half the country resides in a Zone III or higher tornado risk zone. Zone III indicates risks of 200mph winds or higher. Many are familiar with “Tornado Alley” and associate that with Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri, but not many know that the real risk for tornadoes stretches from the midwest to the plains and into the eastern states.
In Ground Storm Shelters Offer Maximum Protection
When tornadoes and severe weather strike, the rule of thumb is to get to 1) the lowest level of your home, 2) away from windows, 3) in an interior room. Unfortunately for millions of people, they don’t have a safe place to go. Many homes are built on a slab with no basement, and popular trends are to build homes with more open floor plans. Not having a basement or interior rooms leaves little in the way of safe places to during severe storms or tornadoes. That’s why we love our in-ground storm shelters. These shelters offer maximum protection and are easily accessible. Most units can be installed in one day in your garage, giving you peace of mind when the weather gets severe.
