How To Build A Storm Shelter/Root Cellar
People who live in areas that have destructive storms, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, should have safe rooms or storm shelters where they can ride out these storms safely. The Federal Emergency Management Association has information on construction standards for storm shelters, referred to as safe rooms, and may offer states or local governments incentive grants to help pay for them.
