Tornado Safety Tips from Ground Zero Storm Shelters

Southern to Central Plains Tornado Averages

Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas


Areas of the Southern to Central Plains are part of Tornado Alley, so it is fairly obvious these states are quite active. The dominant states in this region all see tornado averages that peak in May. We would like to point out that Texas has tornado averages in every month of the year! Both the western (and partly mountainous) states of New Mexico and Colorado see their tornado averages peak in June. New Mexico ranks relatively low on the scale mostly because it is located in a dry region.

Check out the tornado averages by month in the following states:

Storm Shelter Ventilation

What type of ventilation do storm shelters have?

Ground Zero’s tornado shelters have different ventilation depending on the model. Our underground garage units have 360 degrees of passive ventilation around the back lid / cover (it is lifted up slightly to provide adequate ventilation). It also has two hand holes that can work as vents as well. The above ground safe rooms have two vent holes cut into the door that allows air to flow easily as well as ventilation around the entire door. Our outside underground concrete units come with a 6” wind turbine and a 6” vent for ventilation.

Don’t wait any longer! Keep your family safe by ordering a storm shelter today.
