Whether your property is in the middle of a drought or in the middle of a hurricane, the best place to find a safe refuge during an emergency is underground. There are a variety of shelters for storms, ranging from small, residential shelters to huge, super-school-sized emergency shelters. They are affordable and are an excellent way to save money.
In contrast to above-ground storm shelters which require digging a hole into the ground below-ground shelters are easy to put up. They are simply lowered into the hole and then backfilled with concrete. If the weather is bad enough the lid is put on and the Shelter is secured to the concrete slab. They are more secure than shelters above the ground because they are built below the ground. You don't be concerned about a damp roof or uncomfortable conditions.
In addition to above-ground storm shelters there are also underground shelters you can put in your garage. This type of shelter is similar to the other underground storm shelters, except that it's installed under the garage. The only difference is that the above-ground shelters are constructed of high-grade steel and must conform to the specifications of FEMA and local codes. It is the most effective way to protect your home. However it is recommended that you hire a professional to help you get the permits and construct your storm shelter.
