Last Updated: July 28, 2016 The time for Severe Weather Week has arrived. It’s time to get ready for the 2015 tornado season. And states in “Tornado Alley” and beyond are doing just that.
Across the nation, there are severe weather preparation events across the board.
Last week was Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Georgia. Next week, Feb. 15-20, will be Alabama’s turn to prepare for the kind of weather that sends people rushing to batten down the hatches.
Other states, from Arkansas to Texas to Kansas to Oklahoma to Ohio have marked the first week in March for that task. And still others have designated later weeks as their time to prepare for severe weather that includes tornadoes.
A full Weather Preparedness Events Calendar is available on the National Weather Service website, along with tornado safety basics and more.
With about 1,200 tornadoes hitting the U.S. each year — and nearly 90 percent of U.S. counties under a tornado watch since 2003 — it’s a good idea for families to plan a safe room where they can sit out a storm.
At Survive-a-Storm Shelters, we can help you do that. With numerous storm shelter loans available as well as multiple storm shelters to choose from, the team here at Survive-A-Storm Shelters is ready to help every resident in Tornado Alley, or anywhere there is the threat of tornadoes. We have shelters to fit every household, every situation, and every budget.
All of our Survive-a-Storm Shelters have been tried and tested, are FEMA-compliant, and are able to withstand winds and debris from any EF5 tornado. Whether you are seeking below ground shelter, or prefer to seek shelter in a safe room above ground, the National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have given us their seal of approval.
