We are looking to get a storm shelter come tax return and we are looking to get one at a reasonable price. There is only 3 people in our family (as of now) and we dont need something big and fancy, just something to keep us safe.


Does anyone have a website link for a good place? I cant find anything really, and what I do find isnt in our area.

I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any info.

Thanks

Before you do that, I would check and see what your city ordinances are for construction, et al.

What part of Birmingham do you live? If you're northwest or north of downtown, I would say that it's a good idea.

If, on the other hand, you're on the south or southeastern part of town, I wouldn't bother with it. Tornados very, very rarely come over the mountain. Some meteorological quirk, I guess.

In fact, here's a useful database that shows where the tornados hit in Birmingham.
