Tulsa and much of the surrounding area is often called Tornado Alley for its destructive, potentially deadly storms. Safe rooms and storm shelters are some of the most important investments that homeowners can make. They can save lives in severe weather, and they can keep valuable possessions and paperwork safe. That way, you won’t have to worry about losing a family heirloom or your child’s birth certificate.
Tornadoes often form with little warning, so you won’t always have time to get all your family members to a public shelter. A storm shelter will increase your peace of mind and add value to your home. Here are some tips to help you choose the right storm shelter for your property.
Roads could be blocked for hours or days after a storm. Your safe room should have storage space for enough food and water to last at least a few days. Also, make sure you have the medications you might need for the same duration. You should keep a few blankets, some books, a battery-powered radio, and a flashlight in your storm shelter as well. You can stay comfortable and keep kids occupied until the authorities assure that the danger has passed.
