Tennessee Storm Shelter Sales Affected by Oklahoma

Storm shelters are being sought out in the state of Tennessee increasingly since the devastating tornado hit Moore, OK on May 20. There have been a record breaking number of tornadoes in many states over the past few years. Tennessee saw 113 tornados in 2011. This number was double the states has seen since it started keeping weather statistics in 1916. This mixed with the devastation seen this year has increased interest in storm shelters.

With the amount of destruction and death seen from tornados, storm shelters are a sought out product in most states. Interestingly, a tornado strike in one part of the country can spur interest in other areas. Though community shelters are available in many neighborhoods, the unpredictability of this type of weather makes relying on traveling to safety a danger. Many home owners are researching and installing a storm shelter on their property. The peace of mind of having a close and reliable safe place to go in an emergency is well worth the investment to many families. A storm shelter is the type of purchase most consumers research thoroughly, often starting on the internet.
