FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Safe Room Protects Oklahoma Family   [open pdf - 52KB]

"When a massive tornado was sweeping across central Oklahoma on May 20, 2013, Mindy Chaddock and nine family members quickly took refuge in her mother's underground safe room. The house above them was reduced to rubble, but the family survived. As the day began, there was little indication that an EF-5 tornado would soon take the lives of 24 people, including 10 children, and destroy 1,200 homes."
