School bus turned tornado shelter
« on: January 27, 2012, 06:50:02 PM »
Just saw this on MSNBC...  http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nbc-news/46167396/
They live in a mobile home park and wanted better tornado protection. The solution: bury a school bus purchased from a junk yard as an improvised tornado shelter.  Although they say it is burried 9' deep in the video, it looks like that is just from the surface to the floor of the bus with little soil on top.

Maybe the hole was 9' deep? I would think 9 foot of soil would require some reinforcement.
