Hobbit houses.

Best Answer

think better than that

Best Answer

I think the Hobbits had it about right, actually. incorporate some glass bricks for lighting, but anything that could support the weight of the earth could withstand the pressure drop of a tornado passing, right?

Best Answer

A house built into the side of a hill or how about earth built homes they are strong structure then buried so far beneath the earth....just a thought...

Best Answer

These are called tornado cellars. Most homes in Tornado prone areas have them. This is why the death toll from these storms are as low as it is. Should trailer parks have tornado shelters for their residents? Yes. Should businesses have them? Yes. As far as buildings withstanding the forces of these storms, if they hit dead on, there's no preventing destruction.

Best Answer

it is only a place of safety and nothing more,but maybe you should only build houses underground, in they type of places

Best Answer

That's hardly practical.

Best Answer

yes but less practical to build above ground in that type of place, if you will not be able to get insurance for a house in that type of place.as you can lose a house each year.

Best Answer

Have you actually got a real idea of the size and scope of the area we're discussing? Millions of homes and people. The chances of losing a house a year is nearly moot. You hear about the homes and lives that are lost in the news, but you don't hear about the millions of people who live there that never are affected. People get the idea that we have nothing but storms and disasters here. Blame that on the media.
