      if you have new construction and it's a slab they bolt it right to your slab. your house may blow away but the shelter will still be there. they even partially bury some.

      they aren't cheap, but since Joplin and Tuscaloosa/Birmingham there's been brisk business.

      In my haste I typed "hurricanes of 1999" instead of "tornadoes".

      Yes, the piece was about tornado safe rooms.  The modern version of the storm cellar on Dorothy's farm.  Many are in the basement, but at least, as terrypinder says, bolted to the foundation.
