I would look at a old video Bob Vila made I think after leaving this old house about using Shipping Containers that are move on land by Tractor Trailers & shipped on Large Container transport goods worldwide.

They were showing how the Shipping Containers can be converted into homes that can withstand Large Tornados.

I think they welded the Containers to seversl steel beams buried deep into a concrete base at an angle in the ground to keep the Container connected to the ground. They showed windows & doors that can with stand Tornados to I think a F4 or F5 Tornado, but I am not sure.

We hope that Bob Vila would do a Public Service to donate some of the Tapes or DVDs on building these Container Structures in Florida and locate suggested Tornado Building Codes in the USA.

I think Bob Vila should contact a current Major Television Network about these Container Homes that can have an external shell of a building up quickly with the Windows & Doors that can withstand severe Tornados.
The Weather Channel is looking for any information on buildings that could withstand the Tornados that would help Joplin.

Bob Vila emeployees please locate these DVDs or Tapes through Bob Vila and provide a link to them here so people can purchase the videos for theirselves or for someone that wants to build one.

We recently wrote a complete guide to building an underground storm shelter. It's a seven-step guide based on our knowledge of how we manufacture storm shelters. Read it here:

Hope this helps...for more storm shelter manufacturing info visit
