Maxi and I weathered the storm alone, while Andy was 'evacuated' to CA. Before he left we set up The Room: a shelf to put in our papers, computers etc an electrical cord from the ceiling, so that I had light, a little fan, radio and telephones working a comfortable chair for me and Maxi's blanket, of course.

By 2 am our county was in a tornado box on TV and since it was dark, I decided to retire to The Room. Shortly thereafter, we lost electricity but the generator kicked in automatically and then I actually fell asleep in my comfortable reclining chair until the early morning. The little fan (the last one off the shelf for $2.50) was just perfect, and we did not need any more AC, as we once had contemplated.

Well, the house is still standing, but a few trees are not!

In summary then, I felt very well prepared and protected, and will take hurricanes over earthquakes any time!

There are well-established consensus standard such as ICC-500 and guidelines including FEMA 320 and FEMA 361 to define the design criteria and quality requirements for (safe rooms) storm shelters. The National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) has developed and utilized comprehensive processes for verifying compliance of Producer Member products with these standards and guidelines. Lists of the professional involved in compliance verification may be found at By simply requiring the NSSA Seal on shelters you invoke the infrastructure and process of NSSA to assure quality of shelters and their installation. While this does not usurp the authority or role of local jurisdictions or authorities, it compliments their efforts by displaying a nationally recognized seal attesting to the quality of the product that has been tested and verified by independent professionals to be in compliance with the applicable standards. Local authorities will welcome the Seal and all the expertise and effort that it carries with it to ensure shelter quality. This is the highest possible level of quality assurance available to you at no additional cost to the jurisdiction or to the consumer. The quality verification process imposed on NSSA Producer Members avoids the duplication of effort and cost of having other agencies become involved in ascertaining quality. The NSSA quality assurance program has received the recognition and acceptance of FEMA and most state hazard mitigation authorities administering the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HGMP).
