Whether your property is in the middle of a drought, or in the midst of a hurricane, the best place to find a safe refuge during an emergency is underground. There are a variety of storm shelters available, from small residential shelters to large emergency shelters that are used in schools. They are affordable and are a great option to save money.
Below-ground shelters are a lot easier to construct than above-ground storm shelters. They're simply placed in the hole and then backfilled with concrete. If the weather is enough severe the lid is put on and the Shelter is secured to the concrete slab. And because they are built in the ground, they're much safer than shelters that are above ground. You will not have to worry about an unattractive roof or damp conditions.
There are shelters that you can install in your garage, in addition to above-ground storm shelters. This shelter is similar to other shelters underground, however it's located under your garage. The only difference is that the above-ground shelters are built of high-grade steel and must comply with the requirements of FEMA and local codes. The best method to secure your home is to construct your own storm shelter, however, make sure you hire a professional and get the appropriate permits prior to starting.
