Isolated Cells Threaten Tornadoes: Are you Protected?
July 6, 2016
Last Updated: July 28, 2016 When people think of super cells and tornadoes, they mainly consider states like Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and so on. The focus is always on ‘tornado alley.’ Unfortunately, tornadoes cannot be contained within the invisible walls of tornado alley any more than they can be considered harmless wind tunnels. These next few days may be somewhat of a challenge for our northeastern states with the supercell storms headed their way. Chances are, not many homeowners have protected themselves from tornadoes, believing there is no reason since they are rarely seen in their area. However, as unpredictable as the weather is, anywhere, having a tornado safe room is smarter than not having one at all.
Do super cells always produce tornadoes? Perhaps not, and if they do, they might not touch down, but do you want to take that chance?
Ask anyone in areas like Moore, Oklahoma whether or not having a storm shelter is worth it, the answer is always a resounding YES! I have heard many of our customers who have purchased our units make the statement, “Even if we never use our storm shelter, it gives us great peace of mind knowing we have a place to go.” Owning a storm shelter has been likened to owning an insurance policy or even a spare tire. You don’t want to have to use it, but it is nice knowing one is available. No matter where you live in the lower 48, there is always a chance of tornado activity if there is a storm in the area. And because of that, we have made our below ground and above ground steel storm shelters available for purchase through The Home Depot website. If you are in our service area, we can even come out and install your above ground tornado safe room. If you live in an area in the United States where our service area doesn’t reach, then most contractors have the ability to install them for a reasonable rate. In some cases, they make great DIY projects for you and your buddies or even the whole family.Super cell storms are scary and unpredictable. Whether they produce one or many, tornadoes are a part of the package in most cases. So, it doesn’t matter where you live in the lower 48 states, if you can get to the internet, or a phone, we can help!
