No one will soon forget the night of nearly a hundred tornadoes.
Clean-up still continues in Wichita and across the state. There were no deaths in Kansas April 14th. Experts say that's mainly because people had plenty of warning and found a safe place.
Since the stormy night, shelter builders have seen a spike in business. Dale Zogleman of Protection Shelters says the volume of calls and emails he received the first week was "insane".
"People that were on the fence have decided we need to something because everybody deserves a safe place to go," Zogleman said.
He showed off a 3'x6' metal shelter safe room that was recently installed in a newly constructed home. Such rooms can cost between $4,000 and $10,000. The shelter is anchored below ground and built to withstand an EF-5 tornado.
Zogleman said some people who purchase storm shelters do so with neighbors in mind. They'll build a shelter larger enough to house a senior who lives alone or a family with small children.
The important thing is to have a plan.
Whether you buy an above or below ground shelter, retreat to a basement, or take cover in an interior bath tub, you should have a safe place to go when severe weather hits.
