    Just wondering why building codes do not require "safe rooms" in houses and commercial buildings that are geographically located in Tornado prone areas? Let’s start a "Safe room Design Challenge", requirements as follows: keep the cost low, tensile strength of room to exceed all possible storm categories and basic life support systems like water, air, electricity and some food/energy bars in case the room is buried under debris.
