I can’t imagine living in Tornedo Alley and not have an under ground bunker with supplies in the back yard. The kids in school went into the hallway for protection, they say...don’t think that would make me feel safe.
Maybe legislation requiring developers to put in bunkers when they build houses???
You can't build a basement here and keep it dry. It's unpossible without massive expense, even if you were to legislate it.
My groundwater table is very shallow and I live at the edge of an underground stream.
I've seen a few ropes on the ground in my day and run from a few more. Scariest thing to me about tornado's is storms that come in the night. Can't really get a feel for storms in the dark. You can still hear them, but can't see where you are relative to the path.
