7 Survive Direct Hit By EF-4 Tornado
In April of 2014 several
tornados touched down in the Little Rock, Arkansas area. The home and business of one Safe Sheds customer sustained a
direct hit which destroyed a double-wide mobile home, a metal shop, an office building, and 8 vehicles. A full sized
pickup truck struck and wrapped around the shelter, causing only cosmetic damage to the Safe Shed. Seven survivors and
their two pets exited the building after the storm blew over to find a huge debris field, no sign of their home or offices,
and the homes of their friends and neighbors destroyed. As these photos show, their Safe Shed saved their lives!
