It has abttery power auto maticallt charge and even a pumpo because he know of flooding problems . of course it has a cemant floor too. He siad that with teh new warnings its much easier than when he was a kid to seek shelter in time.I know when I was sationed in oklahoma I saw the result of sevral torandoes one year and basically the whole house was levels many times. We had to clear lookign for survivors. That was becaue the sheriif needed the help because he was super busy afterwards.We actually found people two days later from one storm;dead of course. i have always had a respect for torandoes afterthat and have gone thru sevral hurricanes too.Its the suddeness that is scary with tornadoes.I'd definite have a shelter the same as people living in hurreicane areas have seen maybe one relly dangerous storm in their life time but that is enough.
Your post actually gave me the chills. I've only seen the aftermath of tornadoes on t.v. When I was a kid, we had a bad storm (probably straight line winds) rip through our neighborhood in rural Pennsylvania. I've always been overly aware of the wind since that time. As Mick Jagger says "Give me shelter", lol. Intrigued by your personal story. Do you live in an area that gets hurricanes? Tornados? Definitely getting a shelter of some sort built.
