Tornados devastate a number of American communities each year while hurricanes regularly affect our coastlines. When the time comes, seeking shelter that will withstand a storm’s fury or societal unrest is paramount. In the inevitable face of weather gone wild or citizens running amok, American ingenuity brings us a lot of options for prefab shelters for budgets both large and small.

With some forethought, you can drop a shelter in a spot that is easily accessible in an emergency. At that point, your family can bring a good book, some board games and a flashlight to while away the time as Mother Nature wipes the landscape clean nearby. In some areas,there are government grants to help offset the purchase price for a shelter, and little brings peace of mind better than having a safe and reliable refuge that’s readily accessible when disaster strikes.
