Rare November Tornado Breaks Out in Illinois and Central Indiana Triggering People to Discuss the Importance of Tornado Shelters Year-Round. Big Texas Containers is now offering high quality tornado shelters that can be shipped to all 50 states.

Last month, severe storms erupted that led to a devastating tornado in Illinois and Central Indiana. Through the duration of the storm, there were more than 50 tornados reported in Illinois and Indiana. Homes and buildings have been damaged and destroyed and there have been 8 reported deaths so far. Many people are without power, and officials are still searching for injured or dead beneath the rubble. Rare tornadoes ravishing communities in November, a time far from “tornado season,” is another reminder of the importance of tornado shelters and safe rooms. These facilities have the ability to save lives during a storm no matter what time of year. In the last year, there have been some of the most torrential storms. This latest tornado undoubtedly brings back the terrible memories of 2013’s Moore, Oklahoma tornado that took the lives of many and left destruction across the small town. Included in that destruction were schools that did not have any tornado shelters on site. For any individual or family who has been t hinking about investing in or upgrading their existing tornado shelter, now is the best time to do so. When devastation strikes, there is rarely any warning. Having the best protection available is the only way to protect an individual or family from a shattering storm.
