An underground bunker with its door wide open

3 Advantages of an Underground Bunker

Are you considering installing an underground bunker on your property in Oklahoma? As a resident of Oklahoma and nearby states, it’s quite necessary to have access to a safe room or storm shelter, as South America is bombarded with earthquakes and tornadoes all year.

Underground bunkers have historically been used in times of war, but with modern technologies, they have been adapted to homes and community spaces for protection against many crises.

Here are a few advantages of having an underground bunker in or near your home.

Safety During Natural Disasters

Depending on how they’re built, underground bunkers offer homeowners safety against natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, cyclones, and many others. Given the climate of where you live, your bunker should be ideally built, keeping in mind the kind of disasters you might face.

For example, in areas where floods are common, underground shelters should be made using non-porous materials – such as steel – to avoid seepage. In the same vein, underground bunkers and storm shelters built using concrete can provide solid protection against tornadoes.

Protection Against Man-Made Disasters

If you find yourself in a burglary situation, your underground bunker can serve as a safe room from where you can call for help. Similarly, if the electric grid in your area fails, your bunker – if equipped with the right items – can be your haven to ride out the disaster.
