I live in the tranquil state of Oklahoma where the wind does indeed come sweeping down the plain. I was thinking about a Safe Room or a tornado shelter after the recent town of Picher was destroyed last week. I remember my Reecom weather radio going off for a tornado watch and turning on the local news and watching the radar explode just north and east of here and move eastward. Then it all headed towards Picher. It is very distressing to not only hear about people dying from tornadoes but also hearing it happen "live". It reminded me of the F5 tornado that hit OK city and seeing the news helicopter film it while it was happening. Then seeing the huge swath of all those neighborhoods destroyed and realizing that someone or people were dying while I was watching. Very troubling. That F5 headed towards me but all I had to do was take cover and it died down. So I have been making a more concerted effort to get some sort of protection since its easy to be complacent and think itll never happen. I also had this stupid thought that somehow my house is built like a rock and that thought quickly went away after a severe storm rolled through and my roof made noise during the winds. Does anyone have a safe house? I am curious as to how much they really cost and if they are a huge hassle to get installed. This is a pic from my backyard of a tornado ten days ago (only F1) that touched down and lifted back up right over my neighborhood and touched back down again two miles down the road. Definitely not as scary as it could have been.
