Underground is the best place to seek safety in the middle or the worst of an apocalypse, regardless of the location of your home in the middle of a drought or a hurricane. There are many different kinds of storm shelters, ranging from small, residential shelters to large, super school-sized emergency shelters. The most appealing aspect is that these types of shelters aren't expensive, so you'll save a lot of money.
Unlike above-ground storm shelters, which require digging a hole into the ground, below-ground shelters are easy to set up. Shelters are simply lowered into the hole, and later filled with concrete. When the weather gets bad enough the lid is put in place, and the Shelter is secured to the concrete slab. They are more secure than shelters built above the ground since they are constructed beneath the ground. They won't need to worry about the roof getting wet or damp, uncomfortable conditions.
There are shelters that you can put in your garage, and also above-ground storm shelters. This kind of shelter is similar to other underground storm shelters, minus that it's installed under the garage. The only difference between above-ground shelters and underground shelters is that they're made of high-grade steel. They must also be in compliance with local codes and FEMA requirements. The best way to protect your home is to build your own storm shelter, but make sure to hire a professional and get the right permits before you begin.
