What is a Storm Shelter and Do I Need One Where I Live? | Redfin

If your area is prone to extreme weather, such as tornadoes or tropical storms like cyclones or hurricanes, you may want to consider building a storm shelter on your property. Storm shelters can be retrofitted to fit the needs and space of your home to provide easy access, protection of your valuables, and act as a safe haven in emergencies. Most importantly, it’ll keep you safe during times of inclement weather, such as high winds causing random debris to become projectiles at speeds upwards of 100mph. If you live in a place with severe weather, such as Savannah, GA, or Miami, FL, a storm shelter may be the right move for you.
