Interest in Storm Shelters Spikes

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 The rush is on. Thanks to the March 25 storms in Oklahoma that left four dead and more than a thousand homes and businesses damaged, Survive-a-Storms is seeing an uptick in inquiries about our storm shelters.  Interest in storm shelters spikes!No surprise there. Experts say the best place to be in a tornado is inside a storm shelter, so we are glad to know that homeowners are following good advice.[caption id="attachment_10956" align="alignleft" width="533"]interest in storm shelters rise Map of tornado alley proves why interest in storm shelters are on the rise[/caption]

History repeats itself as interest in storm shelters spike after the May tornadoes

It's not the first time Oklahoma residents stepped up their interest in tornado shelters. Back in May 2013, when a mile-wide F5 tornado hit Moore, consumer interest in safe rooms increased dramatically, partly due to the severity of the storm and the financial help that was available.The ShelterMoore Grant Program, funded primarily by the Red Cross, helped make storm shelters more affordable for many residents of the town of Moore, OK. The grant reimbursed Moore residents for up to $2,500 of the cost of installing a storm shelter in their homes.Survive-a-Storm helped with several storm shelter models of varying sizes, priced starting at less than $3,500. And Survive-a-Storm’s knowledgeable storm shelter experts helped guide residents through the process of applying for their rebates.

Difference in severity

This time things are different. The tornado that hit Moore during rush hour on March 25 was much milder, an F2,and the federal government has determined that Moore is not eligible for federal disaster assistance.“Based on our review of all the information available, it has been determined that the damage from this event was not of such severity and magnitude as to be beyond the capabilities of the state, affected local governments, and voluntary agencies,” according to a letter from FEMA.As a result, Governor Mary Fallin today announced that the state has now requested a disaster declaration to help small businesses in Tulsa and Cleveland counties through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Don't wait until something major happens to peak your interest in storm shelters.  Now is the time that help for businesses affected by the storm might come through. But whatever happens, now is the time to prepare for any storm coming your way.  Survive-a-Storm Shelters can help you do just that. Call Survive-a-Storm Shelters at 888-360-1492 and talk to one of our experts about installing a FEMA-approved above ground or below ground shelter that will keep your family safe in a storm.[caption id="attachment_10957" align="alignright" width="300"]interest in storm shelters Survive-a-Storm units sold in Home Depots as interest in storm shelters are heightened.[/caption]Survive-a-Storm Shelters offers near absolute protection with our full line of above and below ground shelters. All of our FEMA-compliant Survive-a-Storm Shelters have been tried and tested and are able to withstand winds and debris from any EF5 tornado.And with affordable pricing and the many financing options we have made available to our customers, nearly anyone can afford one.

Now is the Time to be Tornado Ready

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 Yesterday is gone and tomorrow hasn't come.  But why wait?  Now is the Time to prepare.  You can't prepare for tornado season too early or too much. That's what Oklahoma residents learned last week when an F1 tornado hit Moore and Sand Springs and tornadoes were sighted across the state and in Arkansas.And that lesson is being reinforced today, as folks scurry to have storm shelter installed, according to a news report from Fox 23.[caption id="attachment_10963" align="alignleft" width="950"]Now is the Time for this family Now is the Time and this family knows the importance of being ready.[/caption]

Now is the time: Prepare early!

One Moore resident, Melanie Ross Douvillier, completed her storm preparations in the nick of time. She and her two dogs – including a two-year-old Blue Pit Bull aptly named Karma -- weathered the storm safe inside the Survive-a-Storm shelter installed in her garage three hours earlier. The tornado touched down one-quarter mile from her home, she said.“It was extremely scary, but I felt blessed,” Douvillier said. “I felt like an angel was watching over me. What are the chances of us having a shelter installed and within three hours I’m in it?”Preparation was also the key for students and staff at a gymnastics academy in Sand Springs, where a combination of weather monitoring, reviewing weather procedures with staff, and quickly moving everyone to safe shelter ensured everyone's safety when the gym roof collapsed 10 minutes later.The March 25 tornado devastated a trailer park near the Tulsa suburb of Sand Springs, left one dead, sent nine to the hospital, and left more than 20,000 residents without power while turning over trucks, ripping off roofs, shattering windows and doing other damage.

Interest in storm shelters is up

As a result of last week's severe weather, Survive-a-Storm Shelters is definitely experiencing increased interest in our FEMA-compliant storm shelters. And Home Depot, which sells our shelters in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri and on their website at www.homedepot.com, says they are extra busy fielding requests for our shelters, because everyone believes now is the time to get ready.Home Depot employee Steve Gandy tweeted a heartwarming photo of a little girl who is "feeling a little bit safer now," thanks to her family's purchase of a Survive-a-Storm TwisterPod.So, as Oklahoma officials emphasize, be prepared. First, get ready for severe weather by planning, practicing, learning and staying aware to keep your family safe. Then take action to ensure your peace of mind.

We can help today

Storm Stories From Oklahoma: Don’t Let Fear Rule

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 For Sarah, the moments before the tornado hit were some of the scariest of her life. For Marie and Neal, their fear persisted long after the tornado ended. The difference? Sarah and her family installed a Survive-a-Storm shelter; Marie and Neal did not.  These are just two of the storm stories people across tornado alley retell.

Storm Stories-take 1

Sarah and her husband turned to Survive-a-Storm Shelters when they decided to protect themselves against future Oklahoma storms. They did their research and chose a steel storm shelter that -- thankfully -- fit their family size and their budget.
“The Twister Pod by Survive-a-Storm Shelters is a perfect fit for our family.  The unit is designed to hold 4 people and we manage to make room for our dog Bella.  The cost is very affordable and they offer financing options for even young families like ours.  The Twister Pod is made of American steel, and fits perfectly into our garage.  The best thing, however, is the fact that our Twister Pod is FEMA compliant and Survive-a-Storm Shelters upholds to the standards of the NSSA, which means someone is checking to make sure their shelters are reliable and offer near absolute protection for my family.” – Sarah

Storm Stories-take 2

Marie and Neal's home in  Bridge Creek, Okla., was spared when the tornado hit. But Marie's parents' home was destroyed. The two couples shared the surviving home as they looked for ways to rebuild their lives, but the impact that the EF5 had on their family was too much.  Sadly, the two couples eventually moved from the state that they loved for fear of the next tornado.The lesson here? Don't let fear rule the day. Act to protect your family with a Survive-a-Storm shelter, either above ground or underground. All of our FEMA-compliant Survive-a-Storm Shelters have been tried and tested and are able to withstand winds and debris from any EF5 tornado. And with affordable pricing and the many financing options we have made available to our customers, nearly anyone can afford one, just like Sarah and her family.You can find our products inside many of The Home Depot stores in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.  They even sell our units on their website at www.homedepot.com.

Aftermath of a Tornado: Stepping Into the Gap

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 It's been four years since a EF-5 tornado ripped through Joplin, Mo., on May 22, 2011, leaving destruction in its wake, and the devastation of the aftermath of a tornado. The storm, ranked the seventh deadliest in U. S. history, took the lives of 157 people, according to the NOAA.[caption id="attachment_10982" align="alignleft" width="878"]aftermath of a tornado Joplin, Mo The aftermath of a tornado in Joplin, MO.[/caption]Since then, the city has worked to repair the damage. Last weekend, it unveiled a new hospital to replace St. John's, which took a severe hit nearly four years ago. Survive-a-Storm Shelters' response to the Joplin tornado was to figure out how it could make its high quality storm shelters and safe rooms more easily available to families.“After the Joplin tornado outbreak in May of 2011 we were appalled to learn that wait times for tornado shelters were as long as six or seven months," said Matt Williams, Survive-a-Storm vice president. "We also heard horror stories about fly-by-night companies that would take deposits for shelters only to steal the deposits.  When we discovered that quality storm shelters were unavailable through major big box home improvement chains, we stepped into the gap and leveraged our experience in the disaster industry.”

 Survive-a-Storm Shelters has a strong track record for stepping into the Gap in the Aftermath of a Tornado

Harbor Enterprises, the parent company of Survive-a-Storm Shelters, already had a well-established track record of helping to provide shelter after natural disasters. It built tens of millions of dollars in disaster housing after Hurricane Katrina under contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA.  The company was one of only several companies that were able to pass rigorous indoor air quality standards.  The company went on to build several thousand homes in Haiti after the earthquake that devastated the small island nation.“Our background in responding to natural disasters primed our desire to help people become more proactive in preparing for such tragedies,” said Williams.  “We are helping to address the supply chain and product availability issues by leveraging our experience in the disaster industry as well as our substantial manufacturing and logistics capacity.”

Now at The Home Depot®

The company's complete line of FEMA-compliant storm shelters are available through The Home Depot® website and in select Home Depot® store locations in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. The move makes buying and installing a storm shelter more timely and efficient, according to Williams.Shoppers walking into any Home Depot store in Little Rock, Ark.; north Texas; southeast Missouri; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Pittsburg, Kan., will discover a shiny grey metal storm shelter display sitting just next to the entrance of the store. As shoppers move into the store, they can get an up-close look at a 4-foot in diameter metal cylinder aptly dubbed “The TwisterPod.” On top of the TwisterPod is a television playing a looping doodle video explaining the process for purchasing the shelter through the world’s largest home improvement retailer.Survive-a-Storm Shelters has been busy rolling out its shelters to Home Depot® stores throughout the Southwest and Midwest.  The shelters are sold inclusive of delivery and installation within a generous delivery radius (typically about 50 miles) of each store location. Customers who want to purchase a shelter simply approach any Home Depot® associate and request a complimentary site visit to their home or place of business. The Home Depot then passes this information along to Survive-a-Storm, which schedules the visit within 24-hours.

Tried and tested

“Confusion about product testing and quality have been far too common in the storm shelter industry,” Williams said.  “Survive-a-Storm Shelters have been designed by licensed professional engineers, tested at Texas Tech University, and manufactured and installed in accordance National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) and FEMA guidelines, providing reassurance that the shelters distributed through The Home Depot meet these very stringent requirements.”Consumers purchasing shelters through the Home Depot website are encouraged to have their shelters installed by a qualified local contractor and inspected to ensure that shelter installation complies with the manufacturer's guidelines for installation.

Stealing: It’s an Ugly Look on You!

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 Here we go again.  This is the third or fourth time in the past year or so that a "competitor" has stolen our product illustrations and misappropriated them for their own purposes.  One company even had the gall to lift a photograph of one of our welders in our factory who was wearing a shirt on which our logo was clearly visible!  Stealing is stealing!

The culprit this time is American Tornado Master out of Texas.  Apparently their shelters don't look as good as ours do, so they got caught stealing an illustration of our ShelterCube Estate and put it on the home page of their website.

[caption id="attachment_4335" align="alignnone" width="940"]Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 10.52.01 PM of stealing American Tornado Master gets caught stealing one of our shelter designs.[/caption]Does that image on the right sidebar look familiar?  Well, it should.  Check out the Survive-a-Storm ShelterCube Estate above ground safe room.If it looks familiar, it's because they COPIED it from our website and misappropriated the use of the image on their own website.  Can you trust a company that steals the intellectual property of their competitors?  I should think not.  How do I know that they stole this image from Survive-a-Storm Shelters?  Because I personally commissioned this illustration from a professional illustrator.This is, unfortunately, far too common in the storm shelter industry.  Another company tried to ride our coattails, and we sued them in U.S. Federal Court and extracted a hefty settlement.  Why?  Because companies work very hard to create products.  Honest companies like ours spend considerable sums to develop engineering plans and specifications.  It's simply not right for a company like American Tornado Master to steal our intellectual property.  By the way, that company that we sued is no longer in the storm shelter business.The only conclusion that we can draw is that American Tornado Master's shelters didn't look good enough to feature on their home page, so they copied one of our illustrations instead.  They say that imitation is the best form of flattery.  We just think it's stealing!  And no one likes a thief.

Be Prepared, Not Complacent

Quotation-Mark-Twain-funny-weather-Meetville-Quotes-134700 be preparedLast Updated: July 28, 2016 It's true that we all talk about the weather, although none of us can do anything to control it. But as the spring tornado season approaches, we can at least be prepared, rather than complacent.Complacency is just what weather pros in Kansas fear. With Kansas City and Wichita experiencing no tornadoes last year -- as well as not a single tornado watch -- officials are concerned that residents might be too relaxed about the upcoming storm season.That is only natural, according to Chance Hayes, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wichita.
“It’s human nature,” he said. "Many of us have a tendency to become complacent when we’re not faced with it on a day-to-day basis. Or we develop the ‘it won’t happen to me’ syndrome.”

The Sunflower State is observing Severe Weather Awareness Week through March 6, and officials recommend that residents be prepared for it, rather than being lulled into a false sense of security.

The numbers tell the story. Although Kansas only had 40 tornadoes last year, it has averaged 100 tornadoes a year during the past 10 years and 80 tornadoes a year over the past 30 years. The state is second only to Texas in the number of severe weather events.And even though 2014 was a mild tornado year in Kansas, the tornadoes it did experience resulted in serious damage. A 13-minute EF3 tornado  on June 3 in Nemaha County, resulted in two injuries and produced the widest damage path estimated at 1,000 yards. An EF2 in Cherokee County on April 27 left $10 million in damage and 25 injuries in its wake.AccuWeather vice president Mike Smith said he sees troubling similarities between this winter and the winter of 2011 that produced the deadliest tornado in more than 50 years in Jopin, Mo., along with a huge outbreak of storms in the Deep South in April of that year. When cold air finally gives way, he said, it sets up a lot of potential energy to feed storms.So don't be complacent. Be prepared. Survive-a-Storm Shelters offers near absolute protection with our full line of above and below ground shelters, and with affordable pricing and the many financing options we have made available to our customers, nearly anyone can afford one.You can find our products inside many of The Home Depot stores in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri.  They even sell our units on their website at www.homedepot.com.

Is a Residential Storm Shelter Your Best Port in a Storm?

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 Should you install your own safe room or residential storm shelter, plan to share your neighbor's,  or head for a nearby Residential Storm Shelter Twister-180x265community shelter when severe weather kicks up?At Survive-a-Storm Shelters, we advise you to choose the first option for two important reasons: you'll know you have a shelter to keep you safe and you won't have to travel through the storm to reach it.

Our customers agree: It's best to purchase your very own residential storm shelter!

Sarah and her husband turned to Survive-a-Storm Shelters when they decided to install their own protection against future Oklahoma storms. They did their research and chose a steel storm shelter that -- thankfully -- fit their family size and their budget.

Tornado Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend

Tornado Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend

Last Updated: July 28, 2016 Tornado safety tips for Memorial Day weekendTornado Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend

Below are some safety tips for Memorial Day weekend so ensure you have a worry-free holiday:
  • Listen to local news or a weather radio to stay up to date.
  • Watch for tornado danger signs: a dark, greenish sky; hail or heavy rain; an approaching cloud of debris; loud, continuous roar or rumble, which doesn't fade in a few seconds; and a sudden stillness or quiet in the air.
  • Take immediate action. Don't waste precious seconds opening windows if a tornado is coming your way. The pressure of the storm will do that for you. Take shelter below ground in a basement or storm shelter or above ground in a safe room. If those options are not available, take shelter in an interior room or hallway on the lowest level. In a high-rise building, hunker down in a small interior room or hallway on the lowest floor. Avoid windows, doors and outside walls, as well as corners, as they attract debris. Cover your head to protect it from debris. Do not take shelter in a vehicle or mobile home or under an overpass or a bridge. If you are caught in a car, stay in the car with the seat belt on. Put your head down below the windows; cover your head with your hands and a blanket, coat, or other cushion if possible. If you are outdoors and shelter is unavailable, lie flat in a ditch or other low-lying area.
  • Get more tips from Survive-a-Storm here.

Other tornado safety tips for Memorial Day weekend include:

Weather preparedness

Lightning safety

  • Get indoors. No place outside is safe in a thunderstorm because all thunderstorms are dangerous.
  • If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you.
  • When you hear thunder, immediately move to safe shelter. Get inside a home, building, or hard top automobile (not a convertible). Although you may be injured if lightning strikes your car, you are much safer inside a vehicle than outside.
  • Stay in a safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last thunderclap.

Outdoor fire safety tips

  • Build fires 25 feet away from structures and keep them attended.
  • Keep children at least three feet away from the fire.
  • Don’t use gasoline as an igniter.
  • Have water or a fire extinguisher nearby.
  • Make sure the fire is completely extinguished when you're done. Don't allow it to burn itself out.
  • Follow local burning restrictions.

Grilling safety tips

  • Only use a grill outdoors and while it is attended.
  • When lighting a grill, keep the top open. If it does not light in the first several attempts, wait five minutes before trying again.
  • Check the grill’s gas tubes and hoses before using a grill that has not been used in a while.
  • When grilling, place the grill away from your home, deck railings and out from under eaves.
  • Keep your grill clean.

Safety on the water

  • Wear a life jacket while boating. The U.S. Coast Guard and/or state laws require you to have an approved PFD (also called life jackets and life vests) when you are in a boat, and that boat must carry one PFD for each passenger on board.
  • Have a signaling device on board. This includes a horn or whistle.
  • Have a fire extinguisher on board.
  • Maintain a fully stocked first aid kit.
  • Have an anchor and an extra tow rope on board in case of emergencies.
  • Bring your cell phone and a VHF radio.
