Natural Disasters and Home Invasions Overwhelm the United States in 2013 Sparking Discussion for the Imminent Need of Tornado Shelters and Safe Room Shelters

Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2013

This year there have been countless tornadoes that have overwhelmed the entire United States. Most recently, a rare tornado struck the Midwest in November and devastated cities throughout Illinois and Indiana. Home invasions have also been on the rise in recent years. While 2013 crime statistics have yet to be released, in 2012 it was reported by the official FBI website ( that the number of violent crimes reported by law enforcement around the United States increased by 1.2 percent. The states in the western region of the United States experienced the largest crime increase, up by 3.3 percent. It is more critical than ever to provide protection for the American family. A safe room shelter in a home or business can provide protection for an individual, family, or a group of employees from death or injury in case of a tragic storm or home invasion. As storms become even more erratic and unpredictable and crime rates continue to increase, it is important to have a safe place in a home or place of business that will provide shelter in case an unimaginable situation occurs. There is rarely any warning when a mass threat occurs which is why it is always important to think ahead.
