Kevlar Storm Room Saves Joplin Woman’s Life

Posted: 02 Jun 2011 07:44 AM PDT

StormroomsJoplin, Tuscaloosa, Georgia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and many other states have been ravaged by tornadoes this past year. Hundreds have died and thousands have been injured.

Yet one woman survived as most in her subdivision died or were maimed.

This post may sound like a commercial but it is amazing what a difference it made.

Diana Swenson came within just minutes of becoming a tornado casualty when a vicious twister swept into her hometown of Joplin, Mo.  

Instead, she survived to tell her story thanks to a shelter constructed of Kevlar, the same material used to make the life-saving bulletproof vests worn by police officers.

Swenson’s home was among the hundreds that were recently battered and destroyed by a vicious tornado. The 200 mph winds sheared off her roof, puncturing large holes in her ceiling. Her furniture was thrown everywhere, and her windows were shattered.

She says that minutes before the twister hit, she ran into the 4 foot by 4 foot shelter that was bolted to her concrete garage floor made of Kevlar. via Fox News

Innovations such as these can be expensive yet when you survive a tragedy like Diana Swenson did in Joplin the cost can be seen as inexpensive compared to the consequences.

Real estate professionals though are caught in a catch 22 when discussing these shelters in a home being sold. There is a huge benefit to having a storm shelter of this magnitude. Yet, during the sales process who wants to introduce the concept of a tornado destroying the house they are buying.

Either way, what peace of mind a shelter like this could bring in an area that is tornado prone.
