Should You Get a Storm Shelter for Your Home?
Storm Shelters for the 21st Century
Especially if you are in a region in America that is prone to tornadoes, such as Texas, Kansas, and Oklahoma, it is important that you are confident that you are using the best available structure that provides as near to absolute protection as possible from deadly winds and wind-borne debris associated with extreme-wind events.
Some of the most destructive forces in nature are tornadoes and hurricanes. These types of wind storms can and regularly do cause injuries and death to people who are unable to safely evacuate or retreat to a shelter. According to a study in Climate and Atmospheric Science, by Vittorio A. Gensini of Northern Illinois University and Harold E. Brooks of the National Severe Storms Laboratory, there has been a significant upward trend in tornado frequency from 1979 to 2017 in areas in the Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast. It’s more important now than ever to have a safe place for you and your family to go in the event of extreme winds.
