Underground Tornado – Storm Shelter

Special Underground Tornado - Storm Shelters

While doing my radio show back in May or June of 1999, I was made aware that a septic tank manufacturer in Kansas City, Missouri, also makes an underground concrete tornado shelter! It is basically a modified design of a standard septic tank, although it comes with stairs or a ladder to allow you easy access.

Evidently, it can be installed in one day with minimal disturbance to your property. There are also fiberglass models available from other manufacturers in the Midwest. If you want to learn more about tornadoes and some of these special shelters, visit a very cool website called Tornado Project.

For information and a plan for constructing an interior, above ground hurricane / tornado shelter, visit and read this column.
