Since there are no neighborhood storm shelters, why the heck did LJW run a poll insinuating there are?

LJW>. please give us a list of where the storm shelters are.. It's crazy to ask this ? and then not fill in the BLANK! .. 87% do not know where a close-by shelter is!.. I'd say that just might be some important news!!

I don't have a basement, and I'm thinking that the last place I want to be when there's a tornado in the area is outside running down the street towards wherever the nearest tornado shelter is.

Well if we don't know where the shelters are, we really need to have a link to that info.

Wow! 87% do not know of a shelter in their neighborhood. I'd say there needs to be much more awareness than that!

I don't have a basement, so I would really like to know if there is a storm shelter near my neighborhood.

At the moment no, but my mom had a contractor stop by in the past few weeks to build a 4' x 6' shelter in the garage. It won't be cheap, but it will be put to use as a storm shelter and storage for valuables.

Why would you need to know of a storm shelter other than your basement?
