Though I do believe that if at all possible that this should be underground too. Or perhaps something like what BOHICA depicted in their diary ---see commentary above.

      Bottom line, the feds have plenty of experience moving things underground, now if only the Red State types under the gun from tornadoes weren't so averse to seeking out and using this accumulated wealth of knowledge and experiences.

        Much like the problem with veteran's benefits. That seems to have been boggled by each administration regardless, and/or ignored.

        Prior to Fallon we had a Democratic Governor and so?

        But then I read an old story that was really screwed up from Shawnee from 2012. The state closed down 2 out of three good shelters, right before storm season because those shelters did not adhere to the American's with Disabilities Act.


        Another story from DeKalb Al, in which the FEMA didn't want to let the city put up signs that point to public storm shelters.
