    This is why when you build your tornado shelter you make it as big and safe as you can. That way the entire family, pets, and your neighbors can fit in. Or at least their kids.
    Personally I'd have a couple cages at the back for any pets. Although my cats would be fine in their carrier a big dog wouldn't be. So you should at least have a muzzle for them. You just don't know how they would react.

    I think we should have free storm shelters because some people don't have storm shelters and and there's some that have Tornado Alley and you can pay form if there's not a lot of tornadoes around without Tornado Alley

    Jim Garner is spot on - I cannot, for the life of me, think of a reason someone would choose to live in tornado alley without a shelter. After all, it's not a question of 'if' you get hit by a tornado, it's a question of 'when'. For the Voice of Reason, this is Amsterdamsel, Queen of the World in tornado alley. Back to you, Brian.

    Reinforced concrete houses. How Americans can live in wooden houses in tornado alley is beyond me. It's investing in a few hundred thousand dollar house that you know for a fact will be ripped off its foundation and probably kill your family and you. That's crazy. Shoddily built reinforced concrete houses in Asian countries withstand category 5 typhoons season after season, year after year. Imagine how formidable they can be built in the US for American families. You can use wood all you want inside the house, but be darn sure that the bones of your house is reinforced concrete of the best quality and the thickest specification you can afford.

    I have never understood why anybody lives in a place that has tornados on a regular basis and doesn't have a cellar or storm shelter everywhere. My family is from Oklahoma and we grew up running to the cellar every time there was a tornado watch. We played games in the cellar some nights, just in case.

    Now I live in the Ozarks of Missouri, where the tornados tend to tip-toe around the hills. But, our home is built into the hill, just in case one drops out of the sky. I can't imagine rebuilding in tornado alley just to have your house knocked down only to rebuild again and again. It's time to get smarter about natural phenomenon such as flooding, tornados, and earthquakes, and learn to live with them in a more intelligent way. Build into the ground more, build berm homes and structures, and for goodness sakes, put shelters into the schools!!!

I didn't tell the whites who are against blacks and ppl ppl of color to treat them the way they do but when u have privilege the thought process is different. and saying someone is ignorant for how they feel is ignorant. being smart u should find out why ppl feel the way they do instead of trolling and trying to start a text battle.

      I know of a man who had serious sleep issues and during WW2 his wife could not get him out of bed in the middle of a bomb raid and she grabbed the children and made for the shelter.

      And when she got back their house was the only won left standing on the whole street. Freak incidents happen. That man could of remained in his house but got flattened.

    The pins/locks appeared to have been about 3/8" diameter. The sliding support brackets looked a little thin, maybe a little under 1/8" but there are two supports per pin/lock. All in all, taking into account the shear and tensile strength of steel, he'd have stood no chance against anything that had the force to rip that door off. Seems like they could have edited out the supposed heroics of him holding the door down.

    When I moved from Calif. to Arkansas 10 years ago, I was surprised when people would say," How the heck could you live in California with all those earthquakes?"

It might be in a pile and all broken up, but at least it's not in the next county."

    You have to build for earthquakes here, why in the world would you not be required to have a shelter there or anywhere near the Alley? Β

  • Haleene Williams
    Haleene Williams 3 years ago +1

    I have heard many people with these shelters saying they still had to hold the doors down. Β Why don't the shelter Co.s build the doors to go down in the first place to get in, then all the Tornado does is secure it. Β 
    They could build a handle that goes through the door jam and you could slide it with a handle protruding from inside the shelter and have a steel bar slide across the top with a welded track on the other side. Β 
    Same security just allows the door to be opened up rather then down. Β 

    In the smaller ones I would put a hole toward the bottom and a metal box extruding slightly from it to put water, blankets, diapers etc, rather then have those things take up valuable human area. Β A couple cans of "air" and a can air horn wouldn't hurt either to get help if something holds the door down (theres another advantage of having the door drop in the first place), or you have to use that space longer then intended, with more people then planed. Β 
    It may turn into your home so a change of cloths blankets and some dried camp food and can goods would be good in that box not sitting in the human area. Β If you have a pet, don't forget their food. Β In cases like this, help takes awhile and no one has the food or water you need right away. Β Some first aid kid should be made also.
    Just a thought..

    I know this would be pretty pricey for workers but why can't all homes have underground shelters in the event of a tornado,Β things like that,Β or shoot, nuclear attack? It can happen! My home doesn't have anything like this. It's got you 2ft underground and if the house was to be torn apart, no top. So there you go, sucked right out of the house. The best thing I could do is hide in a closet. Either way, people who have those houses that aren't built very well are basically screwed...
    I'm just saying...taking that kind of step to being prepared can save tons of lives. It's sad not all houses have shelters. Some of those people weren't lucky enough.

    If there areΒ huge boring machines that can create underground tunnels for trains and subway systems, why can't that same technology be used to create underground shelters for all cities? This way, even if you are not at home and can't get to your shelter, you could simply go underground ANYWHERE a tornado would strike and be safe.Β  There are massive underground bunkers to hold nuclear waste, so why not underground bunkers for citizens to keep them safe from storms like these?
