Would this, by any chance, be similar to the 10'x10' x 6' high buried
concrete box with a heavy bolted steel door installed in my parents' home in
Arkansas?  I also remember my grandparents had a "storm-shelter" in thier
yard (anyone see the opening to the movie 'Twister'?)  What technology do we
have today that will make surviving a direct hit by a tornado that is better
than burying yourself?
